Driver fined for warning other motorists

A Lincolnshire man has been prosecuted for warning other motorists about a speed trap

The man was found guilty at Grimsby Magistrates’ Court of wilfully obstructing an officer and fined over £400. The authorities have defended their decision in charging the man, saying that there was a realistic prospect of conviction and the prosecution was in the public interest. The driver was simply trying to warn drivers of an oncoming road hazard so they avoid sharp braking.
