Help please!!

Hi all

Have decided to fix up the rangie, get her mot'd n taxed and sell her on.

The mrs said last night "You should get another 90". Thats that then. bye
bye rangie!

Anyway, at my new house, i have a private parking space, which i have to
maintan as it forms part of my house boundry.

On this spot, could i say leave an untexed, un mot'd un insured RRC whilst i
get her repaired?

Also, does anyone in Bedfordshire with a trailer, fancy helping me get her
to my new house for a few beer tokens?

I've got a SIIA with a harvey frost recovery hook on the back (in
Luton) if you're stuck, but the chains/drop plate might cause damage
to the front skirt/bumper.

You'll need a SORN thingy but yea, your land = private land = not
highway.

Half a dozen nuts & bolts, a couple of plugs and you are straight onto the
front crossmember, with no soft bits to worry about. A LR must be the
easiest car ever to lift with a harvey frost!

if it's not dedicated as a public highway, or council maintained, then yes.
Private property, 's not on the road. Assuming of course that you don't
block a right of way.

Some years back, when a local hostelty was still open, there was and still
is a big wide junction off the main road with a triangle of grass in the
middle. The said triangle, in some odd fahion, apparently belongs to the
hostelry, not the council. One of the regular boozers had plans to buy it
in order that he could park his car there and sleep off any excess therein,
without the dibbles being able to do anything about it.

He'd have wasted his money - a farmer was charged, and lost his appeal,
for drink driving accross his owm land to the back of his local!

They could have charged him with being drunk in charge, the RTA applies to
private land which the public have access to.

Series/Defender are the easiest. Just wrap around front bumper and
lift.

If he had left the car keys behind the bar, and then gone to sleep in
the car he could get away with it couldnt he?
Can't really be classed as in charge of a vehicle if you can't move
it.

I have already been urged to drive the 101 to various pubs by a few
mates, so we can all kip in the back of it in the carpark after! :)

A friend of my Dad's was done for being drunk in charge after he popped out
of the hotel, where he was booked in for the night, to get a briefcase from
the boot of his car!!!
