Ive had private ticket wardens pounce on my car for not displaying a blue badge when ive just parked up and gone to shop mobility to get a scooter and to get the parking permit to display in the car. This was before i had a blue badge. As you can use a shop mobility permit to display in the car. This car parked is free to use but they once pounce on disabled cars.
I also had a situation with a local shop recently. They have created a -zig-zag' queuing facility (it takes up a lot of the disabled parking spaces, but I understand it would have been difficult for them to do otherwise) that means walking quite a bit before getting into the store. My OH did the queuing and I asked if they would let me through to join him once he got to the front, as walking is difficult for me (I walk with 1 crutch). The people 'controlling' the queue flatly refused to let me do this, even though they were not stopping able-bodied people from ducking under the tape separating the lines. We turned round, got back into the car and went elsewhere.I eventually decided against contacting head office as I expect I would just have got meaningless platitudes in return. However, I used to shop there quite a lot, as they have a wide variety of goods, but have gone elsewhere since then.
