DISABLED drivers have been warned their blue badges may not be recognized in Europe this summer.

Ministers are still negotiating with 11 nations over the status of Britain’s blue badges, which were recognized across the EU until the country left the union two years ago.

France, Spain, Portugal, Greece and Italy are among the countries still “undecided” on recognizing British blue badges, according to the UK government website.

The others are Iceland, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Romania and Slovenia.

The AA has said disabled drivers may face parking fines if they use their permits in those countries, as it criticizes the “simply unacceptable” situation.

The government has told ID card holders to “check with the embassy of the country you are traveling to for the latest developments”.

Jack Cousens, head of road policy at the AA, said: “Holding blue badge users in limbo is simply unacceptable.
