I had to put the 18t wagon half past a 7.5t restriction sign in crook market place which is a carpark with a weight limit on it, but there is not enough room to manouvour and reverse down the alley with out doing this. Im now worried incase I've been caught, Would I get points or just a fine?

It is VERY unlikely you'll get any comeback. They can't enforce with CCTV so there would have had to be copper standing there to issue you with a FPN

It's not unheard of for non-London councils to attempt criminal prosecutions, IIRC Oxfordshire council sends letters inviting the driver to confess, which we advised could be safely ignored as the council has not section 172-like powers in such circumstances.

No, I am not a lawyer.
