Explanatory Memorandum to Traffic Management (Northern Ireland) Order 2005

Articles 33-34: Recognition of badges issued outside Northern Ireland and wrongful use of badges

Article 33 formalises existing (non-statutory) reciprocal recognition of disabled persons’ badges issued elsewhere in the United Kingdom, other EU Member States and certain other countries, and extends such recognition to badges issued in other countries.  Holders of disabled persons’ badges (“recognised badges”) issued in other countries are afforded the same concessions as holders of badges issued in Northern Ireland and are subject to the same enforcement provisions.  The Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons (NI) Act 1978 is amended so that provisions on the wrongful use of disabled persons’ badges apply equally to recognised badges.
