No, there is more to it than that. They have sent me various official letters asking for me to explain why I was using it, and also to attend an interview under caution. It was taken by a Civil Enforcement Officer. I can provide more information if you can let me know what you need to know. In essence I want to know how to respond to them so that I do not incriminate myself. My mother is age 95 and severely disabled, and I drive her around when necessary, and keep the card in my car as she has alzheimers and would not be able to remember to bring it out with her, so I keep it with me at all times so that I can pick her up and take her when necessary.
Sowere you not issued with a £60 fixed penalty ticket?
Otherthan the truth (which is all I can advise you to say,) what were you lookingfor us to tell you to say?
Do you have any idea what the penalty could be and also if they will give my mother her disabled card back, as she obviously needs it and should not be penalised
I haveasked a colleague to look at this for you. She will be along shortly.
I had my mother's disabled badge card in my car, but not my mother with me. I was in severe pain from my hip (which needs replacing) so I did not feel I could walk the distance to where I was going,and that was the closest parking space, so I used it that time. I had a disabled card of my own a few years ago, as I have had heart attacks and a previous hip replacement, but my GP decided I did not need it any more, but now my other hip is very painful. I need the card to be returned to my mother as she is 95, disabled and has alzheimer's and I am the only person who can drive her around when necessary, and therefore need to keep the card in my car. I realise that I was wrong to use it on that occasion.
