Yes I've just received a fine in the post from Hammersmith and Fulham council
no I turned into a private entrance and then backed out on to the road
Just about a prohibited u turn
I have read through the key cases that you provided and one case is referring to the exact spot where I too was caught. In that case his appeal failed because the adjudicator decided that a three point turn does count as a u turn and even though we both used the same crossover into private property we were still on the pavement which is considered the road so the fine stands
