Rights and responsibilities
Using your Blue Badge correctly
- Rights and Responsibilities and Reporting Blue Badge Enforcement
It is a criminal offence if you:
- allow someone else to use the badge when you are not a passenger (to use it for themselves)
- alter the badge in any way
- make a counterfeit of the badge
- use an expired badge
Please Note: In Hampshire you may use your Blue Badge in any residential disabled bay. The bay is not for the sole use of the resident who applied for it.
We carry out on-street operations from time to time in various towns/cities. A warrant card gives officers authority to act on behalf of Hampshire County Council.
If people are misusing a badge the officer has the legal authority to take the badge off them.
