Camden council appeals have rejected my moving traffic

Customer Question

Camden council appeals have rejected my moving traffic violation.
I walked my motorcycle through a no entry, they state that because no vehicles are allowed to pass the no entry sign. Even though the vehicle was not being ridden and I was on foot pushing it, I'm of the opinion that As a pedestrian I cannot be cited for a moving traffic violation.
Do I have grounds for appeal.
I.e. If I had no MOT and all my lights were smashed I can't be prosecuted for that whilst not actually riding the vehicle.

Hello Patrick my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

Was this on the road or footpath?

Expert:  Jo C. replied 7 months ago.

If you were pushing a vehicle then you were still driving it.

There is clear caselaw on this point.

It doesn't matter about the means of propulsion.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 7 months ago.

The case law even arises from a motorcycle travelling through a no entry sign so it is on all fours with your position Im afraid.

You can always appeal and put them to proof. They don't prepare properly so you may win.

Proceeding on the basis that everything is done correctly though you would lose on the facts that you cite.

Can I clarify anything for you?
