When he told Plod that he was waiting for a break in the heavy traffic to reverse onto his property he was told that he could have driven forward into the driveway. When he pointed out that reversing out onto a main road was against the Highway, he was told (I suppose) “tough shit”
He appealed the fine.
The court accepted that he had intended to conduct his driving in a manner designed to mitigate the inconvenience to other traffic but that did not afford him an exemption under the regulations.
OK - What now for this guy?
If his drive was there before the zigzag markings then surely this can’t be his fault.
But on the other hand…
TPUC might offer a solution for others in a similar situation with the process of NCRTS
