MOTORISTS illegally using Blue Badges to park in disabled bays and avoid parking charges are being given the opportunity to hand over permits.
An amnesty for Blue Badges being fraudulently used in East Sussex will take place next month, giving drivers a chance to escape further action.

The amnesty follows a recent crackdown on the illegal use of Blue Badges and is part of Operation Bluebird, a joint initiative between East Sussex County Council, Brighton & Hove City Council and Sussex Police to tackle the issue.

Anyone fraudulently using a Blue Badge can hand the permit over at a number of locations across East Sussex between Monday, June 8 and Monday, June 22. These include libraries, parking shops and county council offices.
