A Wembley mother who used her son’s disabled blue badge to park for free while he was at school has been fined £756.
Lucy Lusinde, 40, of Century House in Forty Lane, admitted using the badge in St John’s Road, Wembley, during a visit to Wembley High Road on June 18 this year.
Blue Badges are a government scheme which provides parking concessions to disabled people to allow them to park closer to their destination.
Willesden Magistrates’ Court heard her son was at school two miles away and was not with her at the time.
She was caught during a joint operation by Brent Council and the police.

Cllr Jim Moher, Brent Council’s lead member for highways and transportation, said: “We won’t tolerate any misuse of Blue Badges in Brent. They are meant for disabled people and if they are falsely used it could deprive somebody who is disabled of a parking space they genuinely need. If we catch and prosecute you we will insist on the toughest possible penalties.”
