Pensioner is banned over speed trap alert
A pensioner who warned motorists of a police speed trap was convicted of obstructing a constable in the execution of his duty, banned from driving and ordered to pay £364 costs yesterday.
Stuart Harding, 71, was attempting to slow motorists down as they approached a Sunday morning car boot sale* where many people were crossing the road. Noticing that police were parked nearby with an officer using a hand-held laser speed camera, he decided that a warning stating “Speed Trap – 300 yards ahead” would be the most effective way of getting drivers to reduce their speed. But as soon as the officer noticed his placard he was cautioned for committing an offence.
Harding said: “ I have been convicted of breaking the law because I was trying to stop others from doing so. It is totally unjust.” Harding also said he had stood at the same spot on previous Sundays warning drivers of the car boot sale, and had received a thumbs-up sign from a passing police car. But the attitude of officers changed when he warned drivers of the speed camera.
Sergeant Sarah Cashman told the court that when she cautioned Harding and confiscated the sign he told her ”I stop people speeding down here. I am only doing what I think is right”.
Banning Harding for a month, Alex Wyman, the magistrate, said: “The use of the sign was a deliberate act and by use of the words ‘speed trap’ you were assisting speeding motorists from being prosecuted”. The court also confiscated Harding’s sign and ordered it to be destroyed.
After the case he said that he had been told that fines collected from speeding motorists on that stretch of the road had netted £12,000 in one morning alone. “It seems to be more about raising revenue than road safety.
I’m just so angry and upset about driving ban. It was totally uncalled for because this wasn’t a motoring offence”, he said.
*car boot sale – an informal market, often in a field, where people sell things from the backs of their cars. People usually sell books, clothes, children’s toys, etc. which they no longer want. Car boot sales are very popular in Britain and take place regularly in many parts of the country.
