Blue Badge holders may park free of charge and without time limit in on-street parking bays (metered or 'pay and display') unless a local traffic order, such as a ban on loading, is in force. You must comply with signs on the kerb-side.
Badge holders can also usually park on single or double yellow lines for up to three hours in England and Wales, or without any time limit in Scotland except:
- where there is a ban on loading or unloading
- at a few locations where local schemes apply e.g. certain areas of central London. Always check local signs for information.
If you park on yellow lines anywhere in England or Wales, you must display your Blue Badge together with a special blue parking disc that shows your arrival time.
You must not park where it would cause an obstruction or danger to other road users e.g. at school and hospital entrances, bus stops, on a bend, or where it would make it difficult for others to see clearly, for example close to a junction.
Leeds City Council enforce the blue badge scheme. Misuse of blue badges can lead to confiscation of badges and prosecution.
