Disabled blue badges are still not recognised in some EU nations – This is Money

Blue badge Brexit bedlam: Eleven European nations - including France, Greece, Italy, Portugal and Spain - are yet to confirm if they recognise UK disabled parking permits in their countries post-Brexit, putting holders at risk of receiving parking fines

Blue badges are allocated to people with disabilities or health conditions to help them park closer to their destination.
