An angry pensioner has been banned from driving after being filmed on CCTV shunting a car which was blocking access to his garage.
Ronald Pemberton, 83, used his Peugeot to push a Ford Ka which had parked in front of his lock-up.
The incident caused chaos as the Ka was shunted into the road outside a primary school.
Two weeks later he was caught repeating the offence outside Cabot Primary School in St Paul’s, Bristol, by pushing a silver Mazda into the road.
Pemberton, of St Paul’s, pleaded guilty at Bristol Magistrates’ Court earlier this year to dangerous driving for the first incident on November 24, 2009.
He denied the second offence on December 9 last year but was found guilty by a jury.
Recorder Nicholas Rowland banned Pemberton from driving for 12 months and ordered him to pay nearly £2,000 in fines, court costs and compensation.
He told him: ”It is an expensive lesson for you. I hope you will think long and hard before you do anything like this again.
”No doubt you were severely irritated with the long-existing parking problem.
”It’s very sad to see somebody of your age in court at all but I’m afraid you can’t go taking the law into your own hands.”
The court heard how Pemberton, who still works running two stationary companies, has rented the garage near his home for 20 years but had come frustrated by people parking in front of it.
Sarah Regan, prosecuting, said the manoeuvres satisfied the test for dangerous driving.
She said: ”The way you deal with it is to leave a note on the windscreen and have a word when they come back. You don’t use your car to move it.”
Giving evidence in the trial, Pemberton said he was unaware of the presence of pedestrians when he carried out the manoeuvres.
”He had no idea whether people were passing by,” added Miss Regan.
Adrian Maxwell, defending, said Pemberton, who supplies the school with stationery, had never been in trouble with the police and knew the cul-de-sac well.
He said: ”Pemberton has been in correspondence with the Bristol City Council to try to stop people parking there and has been co-operative with the police.
”He has been driving since he was about 23.”
The Recorder fined Pemberton £500 for the first offence, £200 for the second offence and ordered him to pay the victim Sayid Sharif £620.59 to cover the cost of the damage to his Ford Ka and £200 for personal injury.
He also ordered Pemberton to pay £400 in court costs and a £15 victim surcharge.
