    "201
    Do not reverse from a side road into a main road. When using a driveway, reverse in and drive out if you can."

    I also think the reversing rule should apply to pretty much anywhere, especially in car parks, its safer.. Why when I learnt to drive did we have to learn how to reverse around a bend on a T junction, and then have to do it on the test, its a manoeuvre just fraught with danger (dunno if they still do it these days).. Ive never done it since in 20 odd years of driving, I'll always drive up to the next right turn if I need to turn around to head back.. Come to think of it, Im not sure Ive ever done a 3 point turn since my test back in the 80's either..lol

    Its the highway code, a lot of which is advisable terminology by way of phrases like "when safe to do so" or "if you can".. I guess the breaking of the law would be determined by the police if they felt your actions amounted to driving without due care and attention, like doing a paticular manoeuvre when its not safe to do so. I doubt you're gonna get banged up for reversing out of your drive, lol ..

    The police won't be interested, they never are. They will send a PCSO round who will get no where as its not law, just advice.

    Weird eh? reversing on to a road is a no no, but during the driving test you have to reverse around a corner in to the flow of oncoming traffic...........
