Did I perform a prohibited U turn, when is a U turn prohibited (is this supported by any codes or rules) and should I pay the Penalty Charge Notice or challenge it in this case?
Forgot to mention that I viewed the still pictures of the situation and I clearly was not obstructing traffic or put anyone in danger
Yes. But black cab drivers do that all the time. The road is very wide so that was why I was able to turn the car that way. I turned the car around so that I could go down Theobald Rd -a left turn down that rd off Southampton Row
So if there is no U turn sign prohibiting me on that particular road when I performed the U turn, how would I know not to do it?
There is a NO U turn sign opposite Holborn station but that is on Kingsway only. Am sure they cannot rely upon that as the sign refers to an immediate turning on that rd.
