To sign a petition?

http://www.change.org/p/justin-tomlinson-mp-blue-badge-parking-automatically-grant-a-blue-badge-to-all-children-in-a-spica-cast

There's an existing thread about dedicated parenting spaces.

This petition is requesting that all children who are fitted with a hip spica cast are automatically provided with a blue badge so that their parents can park in disabled spaces.

A hip spica cast covers a child's legs and hips - leaving just a hole for nappies/toileting.

My son will be fitted with his second hip spica cast later this year - just after his second birthday. He won't be able to walk and he won't fit into trollies - he might not even fit in his buggy.

Having access to these spaces would make our lives much much easier but, because he's under 3, we won't be automatically eligible for the blue badge.

I'm hoping that people here will see this as a valid request and so will take time to sign and share the petition.

Thank you and be kind!

Aren't BBs decided by local authority criteria ?
