Pensioner given 'boy racer' road ASBO

A man in his 80s who rode his mobility scooter on the A12 near Chelmsford, has been given a warning.

Essex Police tell us he was given a kind of 'roads ASBO - similar to what is handed to boy racers.

It's after the man was spotted riding at 8 miles an hour along part of the southbound carriageway earlier this month, causing 4 miles of tailbacks.

Officers eventually escorted him off the road at Danbury.

Police say they decided not to take him to court for careless driving, but say if he does it again, his scooter could be confiscated.
