A motorist who almost caused a major collision by pulling out of a lay-by without indicating has been banned from driving.
Paul Fullerton pulled out on to the A92 in Fife then crawled along the dual carriageway at a low speed.
Fullerton, 59, of White Dales in Edinburgh, appeared in the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.
He admitted that on May 21 last year on the A92 between Kirkcaldy and Lochgelly he drove dangerously.
The charged stated that he exited the lay-by without signalling when it was unsafe to do so, causing other drivers to take evasive action.
It also said he drove at speeds far below the 70mph limit.
Depute fiscal Alistair McDermid said the incident happened at 1.30pm.
Fullerton was seen driving a white Hyundai out of the lay-by without using his indicators.
Mr McDermid said: “He entered into the traffic which was travelling at speeds of 70mph. Other drivers were not aware he was going to leave the lay-by when he pulled out.
“These drivers had to brake to avoid a collision. The accused then continued on his way driving at a speed considerably below the limit.
