Motorist faces court after 'splashing schoolchildren with puddle'

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/ … uddle.html

An instructive story from today's paper, although the reference to "a little-known provision covered by the Road Traffic Act" is clearly rubbish.

It's interesting that the police don't seem to have offered the driver a fixed penalty, which the recent legislation would have allowed.

Hi
The last sentence in the article say he was offered a Driver Awareness Course (though it uses the previous name Driver Improvement course) and refused it.

Sec 3 (2) offence.
I'd have reported for summons as well.
And, remember the verbal NIP

Nice post!  The same thing happened to my neighbour's child and wife the other day. 

I really must slow down.  lol
