Just received todays post, and Bingo !! a letter from the County Council stating that my application for a Blue Badge has been accepted. In order to complete the application I need to make a payment of £10 via phone with a debit or credit card.

I rushed to the phone and paid the £10 and completed the application. It now takes about 2 weeks for the process to complete, and I should then receive the Blue Badge in the post.

In England and Wales, Blue Badge holders may generally park:
  • on single or double yellow lines for up to three hours, unless there is a ban on loading or unloading
  • at 'on-street' parking meters and pay-and-display machines for free and for as long as they need to
  • in disabled parking bays

As you can park on double yellow lines I'm thinking it would be interesting to startup a
'Wesite' or 'YouTube' page called :-

"The 100 best places to park with a Blue Badge to cause the most Mayhem !!"

Can you imagine a parking in a high street close to a junction, at rush hour. You park, wait for the traffic to build up, then you take a photo on your mobile phone and upload it to the website. How long would it take to get to the top 100 worst parking spot !!  Reckon I could make a fortune, especially with a You Tube page.

Only Joking !!  It's just my mischievous mind working overtime.

Thanks to my County Council Blue Badge Scheme Department,
it's going to make my life a lot easier.


  1. I like it! Blue Badge Mayhem! Sounds like fun.

  2. Since when have you needed a blue badge to cause mayhem? Any chance I can borrow it when your on holiday just so I can park closer to the terminal than mrs nichols

  3. Don't let him have it David, Rogie needs the exercise. He is only a couple of pounds away from being mrs nichols twin!
    Talking of extra puonds, how is your waistline mr payn?

  4. As if I'd misuse a blue badge !! Took long enough to get it, don't want to loose it.
