Two motorists fined for using disabled parking bays in Rotherham

Two men thought they had got away with illegally parking in disabled bays in Rotherham, but magistrates said otherwise.

Darren Anthony Wayne Leverett, aged 44, of West Avenue, Rawmarsh, used his daughter’s blue badge on Doncaster Gate in October last year.

He failed to appear at Rotherham Magistrates Court and was fined £150 with £150 costs and ordered to pay a £20 victim surcharge.

Ansar Mahmood, 38, of Halifax, was caught using his daughter’s badge and was fined £100 and £100 costs.
