How would you sentence these hypothetical cases?

1) A private-hire driver has photocopied and laminated a Disabled badge, and uses it while dropping customers off at the airport. None of them is disabled.

2) A private-hire driver has his mother-in law's Disabled badge in the vehicle and uses it while dropping customers off at the station.

3) A fit young man uses a Disabled badge that he bought for £100 in the pub, to avoid the inconvenience of finding a parking space.

This offence is only fineable, they each plead guilty, and for today's purpose they each claim to be earning £350 per week.

CPS ask for £70 costs and the Surcharge has to be £15, unless there is good reason otherwise.
