The London Borough of Tower Hamlets is having a crackdown on the fraudulent users of the Blue Badge which is intended to give priority parking to the disabled.

It has been reported that local tradesmen have complained that blue badge fraudsters are occupying pay and display bays, preventing other drivers and the genuinly disabled from parking.

Some action has already taken place in the Brick Lane area.

Drivers are reminded that misuse of a blue badge classifies as a criminal offence, possibly leading to fines and/or a prison sentence if prosecuted under the fraud act.

So a quick tip – if you use a blue badge fraudulently, watch out – THEY’RE AFTER YOU!
