An 82-year-old chartered accountant who has had a perfect driving record since passing his test before the Second World War was banned for a year yesterday for travelling seventeen miles in the wrong direction on a dual carriageway.
William Howarth became confused as he tried to avoid roadworks and set off on a road between Oxford and Newbury in the wrong direction. Howarth, who uses a hearing aid and wears glasses, was driving in the fast lane of the northbound carriageway as he travelled south causing several drivers to turn around on a dark January afternoon. A police car in the correct lane drove alongside Haworth’s car and stopped him, but as the policeman climbed over the central barrier Howarth set off again. He continued for other ten miles until a police roadblock forced him to stop.
Howarth pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and was also fined £175. He was ordered to retake his test if he wants to drive again after the year in which he is banned from driving is over. Mr Robert Hawes, defending said Howarth still worked five days a week as an accountant, sometimes until eight at night, and had a «perfect» 60-year driving record. He had driven on to the road as he tried to avoid roadworks and had not at first realised he was in the wrong lane because traffic was light and trees blocked his view of the opposite carriageway.
«Within a mile, he realised he was on the wrong carriageway and his intention was to get off as quickly as possible and get back on to the right road. There were, in fact, eight ways along the route where he could have stopped and for that reason he accepts that he is guilty.
This was not a wicked piece of driving. Mr Howarth was disorientated. It was a nightmare journey for him and he was dazed, confused and in obvious shock.»

When I was about nine years old I used to go to the cinema every Saturday morning. After the film had finished, I would go to a toy shop and look at model planes and trains and sometimes I bought them with the pocket money that I had been carefully saving. One day after the film I went to a big department store to have a look at the model planes they had. I didn’t buy anything, but as I was leaving a very large man grabbed my arm quite violently and accused me of shoplifting. The man said that he was a store detective. As I had been concentrating on the toys, I hadn’t noticed that he had been watching me. He made me empty my pockets and he went through my coat, searching for stolen goods, even though I told him very clearly that I had only been looking. Of course he didn’t find anything but by this time several people had stopped to see what was happening.
I felt very embarrassed and humiliated that so many people were looking at me and I was very glad to leave the shop when it was all over.
An hour or so later, when my family were having lunch at home, my father asked me about the film. I then told him that the store detective has accused me of shoplifting and searched me in the middle of the shop. My father immediately jumped up from the table and …
