I was charged with section 32(1) for driving with an expired license. He told me that I couldn't drive my vehicle because I had and expired license. I was ready to give him the keys (I had them in my hand and was ready to hand them over) But then he told me to drive to the closest parking lot. I told him that I didn't feel comfortable doing so because it's a busy highway and not comfortable driving without my license. He told me to keep my keys and to drive to the closest parking lot which was about 300 meters. I asked him who would be responsible if I got in an accident by doing so (I had to turn left to get in the parking lot). He never answered my question and started telling me that he was "doing me a favor". I told him again that I wasn't comfortable in driving without my license and he insisted that I drove to the nearest parking lot. Him being a figure of authority I figured that I had no other choice but to listen to his directions. After parking in the entry of the parking lot, I walk a block in -20 weather with blowing wind and stopped me while I was walking. He said that I would need to move my car in the parking lot because I was obstructing traffic. So again I told him that if I get in an accident who would be responsible. He answered that if I get in an accident in a parking lot that he would be. So I walked back to the truck and moved it another hundred meters to where he was satisfied that it was parked like he wanted. He then took the time to tell me that if the owner of the parking lot (it was a church) didn't want my car there that it would be towed. Which is what I wanted him to do in the first place!!!
Any input on this would be greatly appreciated.
So, now, get a friend with a valid licence to drive the car to your place. Don't wait for the church to tow the car since it'll cost you more. If you can't do this tonight, then call the church first thing tomorrow morning and let them know why your car is there and then get it out of there tomorrow. Issue solved. Don't delay this.
