    Blue badges are not related to tax exempted discs. Local Authorities can choose to charge badge holders or not for parking. My LA does not charge, but other areas around me do. When you park in a bay and use your badge the car you are using does not matter, but check the tariff boards for whether BB people are exempt from charges or not. DD
