I went to get my Free travel pass as a Blue Bade holder again a few days back. This time parked and paid so I could take the BB in with me. Well only one in front of me and a little wait and we went to the desk and put the badge on the desk with my photo ID driving licence. Asked can I apply for a Travel pass please? "Okay I need some ID?" Here is my BB with my photo on issued by my County Council who passed all their confirmation requests, this is my photo ID driving licence with my address?
I will now need another form of information confirming your name and address plus as much information as to what is wrong with you, medical letters etc. ? So as politely as I could muster I replied "Does not the fact I have been issued a blue badge show that I have been deemed disabled, and have trouble getting about. Can you not check that my driving licence is at the same address as my council tax bill? Do you need my conditions so the bus/train driver can treat me in emergencies? Why was I not told this the first time I came?" "Sorry this is what we need and I know it seems silly but I cannot process it without."
By the time I get around to doing the part 3 I am sure they will have added another little nugget to make my life a little harder than it already is. Onwards and upwards
