Council's Car Tax Blunder

Bungling Blackburn with Darwen Council officials 'forgot' to put the new tax disc on the Mayor's car and the Lancashire Evening Telegraph had to bring it to their attention.

Coun Rigby said: "Unfortunately the disc had not been placed in the car. This has now been rectified."

Now consider all those motorists who have received Penalty Charge Notices for failing to display a Blue Badge or pay and display ticket correctly. It looks like they can simply repeat the Mayoral defence in future and ask for discretion to be applied.

Blackburn's latest blunder was covered here in the Lancashire Evening Telegraph.
