A CAR in Swindon had to be towed away after the driver parked it in front of someone else’s driveway, blocking them in.

Now Wiltshire Police have reminded drivers that it is a road traffic offence to park a vehicle and block a dropped kerb after the incident on New Year’s Eve.

A police spokesman said: “West Swindon Neighbourhood Police Team were called to such an obstruction whereby the occupant could not get off their drive.

“Usually such an offence would be dealt with by way of a ticket and getting the driver to move the vehicle. In this instance the driver could not be located and as such the vehicle was towed away.”
