Petition Exempt Blue Badge drivers from Low Traffic Neighbourhoods

The Government must make it MANDATORY to include in the DVLA Vehicle Registration Database, along with name & address of vehicle owner, an exemption marker for those with Blue Badges or life-threatening conditions, from Low Traffic Neighbourhoods and time restrictions without a clear justification.

More details

This information must be used by all local Councils & private enforcement companies so as not to issue PCNs to these drivers. It must be at a national level and not on a local level since I believe most Councils are dysfunctional and fragmented with many people working from home. Being fined causes physical hardship, anxiety, even mental health issues & we believe is discriminatory under the Equality Act 2010. It’s wrongly assumed that many disabled people can walk or cycle. We’re not invisible.
