As many of your know, my husband had two strokes and had to give up work. I am working from home this week, so it's a good time to get a few bits a pieces on the High Street and have a look around as we rely on shopping deliveries from Sainsburys when I am away
We had our little doggie with us, she's noisy but she loves a look out in the car and it's cool enough to take her. Got out the car, put the disabled badge up and popped into the supermarket. We were only in ten minutes and came back to a parking ticket.
The badge was lying in the footwell with her sat on top of it. When the warden had spotted the car she must have jumped up and knocked it off. You have the option now, when applying for a badge to register your car on the database incase of things like this. Thankfully the lady at the local parking department at the council said it should be ok to quosh but I have to put this in writing within 14 days for consideration
She said it often happens and not to worry. I really don't want a £35 fine but if they don't accept it, I will have to pay the fine.
