Driver in court

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Front Page -

A mo­torist drove on the wrong side of a dual car­riage­way be­cause he was low on fuel and did not want to travel fur­ther to a ser­vice sta­tion, a court heard. Po­lice spot­ted Ge­orgi Hris­tov, 37, of Colonels Lane, Boughton-un­der­Blean, trav­el­ling the wrong way on the A2 at Dunkirk at 3.45am on May 2. Pros­e­cu­tor Antony Hook said when of­fi­cers spoke to Hris­tov, who ad­mit­ted dan­ger­ous driv­ing, his ex­pla­na­tion was he was short of fuel and in­stead of con­tin­u­ing on the dual car­riage­way and go­ing back he turned around. Ad­journ­ing sen­tence and im­pos­ing an in­terim driv­ing ban at Maid­stone Crown Court un­til Fe­bru­ary 2 for a re­port, Judge Adele Wil­liams warned that all sen­tenc­ing op­tions were open.
