Blue Badge Abuse

I'd like to think this recent story from Metro was true but one suspects it may have been invented by a bright spark in the IT department generating google juice from mugs like myself:

Disabled driver slapped with £40 parking ticket

By AGENCY - Thursday, November 12, 2009

Disabled driver Harold Cadwallader was given a £40 parking ticket after the sun bleached the print off his blue badge.

Wardens said they could not be sure it was valid.

'I rang the council but they advised me to put my badge where the sun doesn't shine,' said Harold, 87, of Woodbridge, Suffolk.

;-) As the young folk say.

Well - Harold could come to live in Manchester.

I'm going to Woodbridge for my holidays in future if the weather's that good.

Clearly a very modest, self-effacing man.
