John Robson Silver badge

Re: No...

"I have to pay to use a car park. Blue badge holders don't. Therefore my payment isn't for the car park after all. Is that your logic?"

No, it's not.

The payment is not to use the road. It's to use *that vehicle* on public space (roads or otherwise).

You have a choice of vehicle, a blue badge holder does not have a choice and so in many (not all) car parks they get additional time and/or no fees charged.

If it was permission to use the road then it would apply to the person, not the vehicle - which is how the blue badge scheme works...
