From Ed Cummings, Shanklin:

Can anyone explain why blue-badge holders receive free parking in pay-and-display areas?

I have no problem with them parking on yellow lines and disabled bays but why should the poorest people, eg single parents or people out of work, have to stump up fees when the person next to them may well be a rich disabled person? Can’t be fair, can it?
