Man Who Used Peugeot To Shunt Mazda And Ford Parked Over His Garage Banned From Driving

IN this video (and why no Benny Hill soundtrack?) Ronald Pemberton, 83, us seen to use his Peugeot estate to shunt the Ford Ka that has inconvenienced him by blocking his garage. The driver has gone to nearby Cabot Primary School in St Paul’s, Bristol.

That was but one incident. Two weeks later Pemberton shunted a silver Mazda in similar fashion. The Peugeot is mighty. Who will take it on? Anorak suspects this a class matter, and had Pemberton attempted his manoeuvre in, say, Hampstead or Chelsea, he’d have found the massive 4×4 blocking his driveway hard if not impossible to shift.

Anyhow, the matter reaches Bristol Magistrates’ Court. Pemberton is found guilty of both counts of dangerous driving. He is banned from driving for 12 months.

Pemberton is fined £700 for the first offence, ordered him to pay Ford Ka driver Sayid Sharif £620.59 to cover the cost of the damage and £200 for personal injury. Pemberton must also pay £400 in court costs and a £15 victim surcharge.

He could, however, still operate a small pile of bricks, and anyone parking over his garage should take care…
