If you display your Blue Badge correctly, parking is free in the following (with no time limits):
- disabled parking bays
- pay and display bays (if there are no local Traffic Orders in force specifying a time limit)
- in all limited waiting bays
If you display your Blue Badge correctly, with the clock set to show the time of arrival, you can park on single or double yellow lines if:

A Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) will be issued to any driver disobeying these restrictions.
