Eligibility Assessment System Improves Blue Badge Parking System

British Parking Association : 15 February, 2011  (Company News)
The British Parking Association is enthusiastic about new measures in place to prevent Blue Badge misuse through improved assessment of elibility
The British Parking Association (BPA) welcomes the news that new measures are being introduced to prevent the abuse and misuse of Blue Badges. A new badge design, data-sharing system for local authorities and improvements to the assessment of eligibility will ensure only those who have genuine need of a Blue Badge have access to designated spaces and facilities.



The Badge’s new design, which incorporates advanced printing and security features, ensures it is harder to copy, forge or tamper with, and a more secure method of distribution and supply will guarantee that Badges are safely delivered to their intended recipient.



An improved method of production and distribution for the Badges will create a data-sharing system that will enable local councils to improve enforcement too. This new system will prevent potential misuse, for example, where multiple applications are made, or where names of the deceased are used. Also local Civil Enforcement Officers undertaking parking enforcement will be able to check whether a Badge on display in a vehicle is genuine or not regardless of where it is issued in the UK.



Kelvin Reynolds, Director of Operations and Technical Services at the BPA, said: “We are delighted that these measures will be introduced as it will allow genuine Blue Badge holders an improved service, and provide local authorities the means to more effectively manage and enforce the scheme. Abuse, misuse and fraudulent use of Blue Badges should become a thing of the past; everyone should welcome this.”
