Disabled Motoring – Baywatch

/, PSI/Disabled Motoring – Baywatch

A common problem for many disabled motorists is not being able to park at their desired destination, especially at their local supermarket.

The major complaint is that the disabled bays are all occupied with cars not displaying a Blue Badge

Disabled Motoring UK’s Baywatch campaign seeks to address this. This campaign researches the level of disabled parking abuse at supermarkets, by asking disabled motorists to survey their local supermarket car park.

Specifically, they count how many disabled bays are provided and how many cars that are parked in them without displaying a Blue Badge.

The other information they ask for is details of the type of enforcement (if any) carried out by the parking operator responsible for the car park.

Details of the operator and enforcement should be displayed on the signage near the disabled bays.
