Four drivers have been fined for using a blue disabled badge they were not entitled to.
North Somerset Council is warning residents that the abuse of blue badges will not be tolerated.
This is the tough message being sent by the council following the fining of four residents, two from Weston, after their cases were heard at North Somerset Courthouse on November 29.
Linda Scott, of Ashbury Drive in Weston, was ordered to pay £402 with costs after using a friend's badge to park at The Campus.
Julia Mannings-Hill, of Ashcombe Park Road in Weston, was also ordered to pay £368 with costs after using her father-in-law's badge in North Street, Weston.
