    Uk guest can no longer use there blue badge for parking in Florida. You will need to obtain a temporary disabled parking tag. You can apply in person at any of the issuing tax collectors office. You will need to produce your blue badge, photo id and proof of home address for the applicant. This will cost $15 and they accept cash, credit card and travellers cheques. The tag is valid for 90 days.
    If you are hiring an adapted vehicle from a company out there check with them to see if they will provide the tag. The company i used did.

    Thank you for posting this. I think it is a huge load of rubbish that they've changed the policy and no longer honor UK badges. But it is important for others to know. :)
