Fine for man who repainted solid white line so he could turn into his driveway
02 December 2015 @ 18:29

A HOMEOWNER who was fed up with having to drive miles out of his way in the wrong direction to get into his roadside property repainted part of an unbroken white line so he could make a 'legal' left turn.

The accused, from Zafra in the province of Badajoz, Extremadura painted separate white segments alongside the line down the centre of the EX-103 regional highway which links the nearby village of Alcocer with the EX-221.

This meant he could cross the road directly rather than travelling down to the nearest roundabout and doubling back – or so he thought.

His fine of €1,440 – or €6 a day for eight months – is considerably higher than if he had been caught driving across a solid white centre line.

He has also been ordered to carry out 14 days' community service.
