For the last eight years I've used a walking stick and for the last six I've used a mobility scooter usually known as my trundle truck. Over the last six years I've made five applications for a Blue Badge and have always been refused. Which is a pain.
I'm not sure whether the Blue Badge scheme is international so I'd better say that it's a scheme to allow parking concessions when a disabled person is using a car either as a driver or passenger. Unfortunately it is often misused and Blue Badges are sometimes resented by able bodied people but the badge is needed it is invaluable.
But it has now been decided that I qualify and today the longed-for badge arrived. The trundling will get even better!
