I was two cars behind this driver, at a traffic lights; where the left turn is a no-entry. (There is a narrow, one-way road which was for ambulances - now relocated - to access town but has not been altered by the local council.) As the flow of traffic started with the green light, the car in front of me did an emergency stop. I was able to anticipate an emergency stop myself, but was very shaken. I have a new car, this year, and did not appreciate that this could have been my first claim on my insurance for this driver's fault.

Then, I noticed a mid-grey (could be described as dark silver) sports-type car, turning left through the no-entry sign. He had plenty of time to notice the sign because he had been first in line at the traffic lights..

I am familiar with the location and there were two options where this driver could be aiming. (I have recorded a description of the driver in my diary.) I was able to catch up with him and out-line the problem. He looked duly embarrassed and apologised; then, drove out of the car park. (Another car had found a place in the second part of the car park, so I guess that highlights his embarrassment; or not wanting his car to be further identified.)

I would like others to realise that, without a second witness or other evidence (such as a "dash-cam") the police cannot do anything with the fact I recorded the number-plate. With this type of reporting, who knows, they may turn up.

What I find annoying is that this car has been registered in Chelmsford since 2011. They must have known there was a car park at the end of this road and, likely, late and in too much of a hurry to be bothered by the no-entry sign.

If you are the driver reading this, it is not good enough that (a) you are flaunting the law of the high-way and (b) I would have to claim on my insurance for your mistake - bad time-management, deliberate, or whatever. Especially, as you could have driven off - as you did out of the car park - and left two drivers behind you to argue it out.

This guy is insane! Just had an altercation with him and after him flashing, calling me a wanker and making fist gestures he drove past and made a gun shooting gesture to me. Calling the police he should be locked up!
