Section 94 of the Traffic Management Act 2004 gives authorised officers powers to inspect Blue Disabled Badges. Authorised officers can be police officers or a Civil Enforcement Officer.

Disabled Badges can only be used when the badge holder is in the vehicle. The only exception is if someone else is dropping off or picking up the badge holder. Misuse of a Blue Badge is a serious offence.

Offences include;

  1. The badge holder deliberately misuses their blue disabled badge
  2. A person other than the badge holder misuses the blue disabled badge
  3. A person uses a stolen or fraudulently altered badge or a fraudulently created document designed to look like a badge

To report the misuse of a Blue Badge within Stratford-on-Avon district, please contact Warwickshire County Council on 01926 410410
