A PEMBROKE man is accused of driving on a pavement to avoid a queue of traffic.

Joseph Murphy, 22, of Windsor Road, appeared at Llanelli Magistrates’ Court charged with three offences.

Murphy was accused of careless driving after it was alleged that dashcam footage showed that he drove a Mercedes on the pavement to pass a stationary queue of traffic on the A477 in Pembroke Dock on August 28.

He was also charged with driving on that occasion without insurance.
