Disabled Motoring UK – responds

Rotherham Politics has had a response from Disabled Motoring to our story: RMBC wins award from Disabled Motoring UK – Despite having the Blue Badge Abusing Councillor! I quote:

“Disabled Motoring UK awarded Rotherham MBC Parking Services this award because they are one of very few councils actually doing anything to stop Blue badge abuse. The behaviour of one councillor should not detract from the hard work of these parking officers in bringing abuse under control. If it wasn’t for the enforcement team i doubt this councillor would have been caught. I sincerely hope they will be punished accordingly.”
