Hi All,

I just received a PCN in the post today. ( See attached)

I hoping you might be able to assist if i'm able to appeal.

I drove past an End of U turn Zone sign on High Road. At the Next set of traffic lights the was a sign for no right turn on to Aldborough road South. I therefore drove past these set of lights ( prob 30 meters - Just a Guess) and did a 3 point turn and drove onto Aldborough road South.

The PCN contravention states Performing a prohibited turn ( no U-Turn)

Therefore what i'm trying find out: Does No Right turn also mean you can't drive further up and perform a 3 point turn/U turn?


Street View to show end of u turn zone

Street View to show no right turn
https://www.instantstreetview.com/@51.56300...2.67h,-10.3p,1z

Can i appeal on the basis that i'm out of the U-turn Zone and therefore this contravention should not apply?


Thanks in advance

Looks like you can - odd that they have a camera on this though - maybe they are fishing from the no right turn camera before...

The end of no U-turn sign would seem to be clear.

Can you post a better pic of the PCN - bigger and right way up? Is there a video online?

Seems pretty outrageous to me ! They put up a sign for "End of U-turn Restriction" then whallop you for making a U-turn after the sign. You need to appeal this all the way if necessary as they have acted extremely badly IMHO, and I would also suggest you give your story to the newspapers. "Motorist makes legal U-turn and is ticketed for it"

Post a GSV of exactly where you turned.

Did you turn at the end of the layby the turn left into the slip road? if you did the might have got away with the no right turn but not the U turn

OP says the U-turn was by the Cauliflower pub:

Yep that's my point no restriction on a U turn

Thanks for all your responses.

I took a drive today to have a look at the signage. It seems they have recently extended the u turn zone.

The u turn end zone which is on on google maps is no longer in the same position.

I think I'd probably need to take the hit on this occasion.
