Blue Badge Blunders-Manchester & Bolton lead the way!

Manchester and Bolton councils have been prosecuting blue badge offenders for some time now. Their success alongside the Manchester Evening News being able to publish photographs naming and shaming blue badge offenders has led to them being named a centre of excellence by the government.

The government will provide £55million to fund this project. The government also want to make badges harder to forge....which is ironic considering their new 'tamper proof' badges fall apart within days, unlike the old 'non tamper proof' badges which not even the most determined 3 year old could get apart. Let's hope that £55 million gets spent more sensibly!
