Other Concessions for Badge Holders
In many areas local authorities provide reserved parking places for badge holders. You should use these spaces in preference to parking on yellow lines. Local authorities may impose a time limit on the use of such spaces. You must always display a valid badge when occupying one of these spaces, and if a time limit is in force a parking clock must also be displayed.
Some local authorities also waive charges in their own off-street car parks. You are advised to check the notices in the car park to see if, and where, you can park free of charge.
Badge holders are exempted from tolls at certain river crossings. Further details of these concessions may be obtained by writing to the Department for Transport, Disability Policy Branch, Mobility and Inclusion Unit, Zone 1/18, Great Minster House, 76 Marsham Street, London SW1P 4DR, or by calling (020) 7944 2914.
With the introduction of the new European-style blue badge, badge holders will be able to take advantage of the applicable disabled motorists parking privileges wherever they are in the European Union. Further details of the benefits available may be obtained by contacting the Department for Transport as shown in section 18.
