Haverhill Police have urged disabled drivers to have their blue badges clearly displayed or risk receiving a parking ticket and £30 fine.

PCSO Les Scott also warned drivers that people using blue badges who are not the owners of the badge could have it taken off them by police.

“The badge must be displayed correctly with both parts showing and facing upwards so the details can be clearly seen and also be clearly placed on the dashboard,” said the Haverhill town centre PCSO.

“Owners must also read the conditions of having it so they know where they can park – it’s a privelege to have a blue badge.

“We have the right to take the cards away from drivers if they’re not being used properly.”

Disabled drivers can park on double yellow lines if they park considerately but they cannot park on pavements of taxi rinks.
