(5) A person is also not to be convicted of an offence under this section in relation to any works if he proves to the satisfaction of the court that the works carried out were works of repair which-
(a) arose from an accident or breakdown in circumstances where repairs on the spot or elsewhere on the road were necessary; and (b) were carried out within 72 hours of the accident or breakdown or were within that period authorised to be carried out at a later time by the local authority for the area.
Shouldn't this section cover most of the breakdowns and repairs that most repairers/Mechanics/ tuners etc would go out to. ??
"Yes officer" it only broke dowm this morning So I was called out to get it running. ??
At the end of the day, The law cannot be any different for the R.A.C. or A.A. or any other breakdown / recovery repairer. ??
