Is Penarth Road a Public Highway 7 u- On Monday, at Penarth Police Conrt-before Mr J S. Batchelor, Mr J. Pyke Thompson, and Major Thornley—James Evans, haulier, Saltmead, Cardiff, was summoned tor causing an obstruction on the Penarth-road, near Llandough Hill, on the 20th of May last P.O. Morgan stated that he found the defendant's carts, laden with bricks at the side of the roadway, with no horse attached, for over 10 minutes. It was unattended the whole time, and a tiap had to stop in order to allow a 'bus to pass near the spot. Mr George David, solicitor, who appeared for the defence, in the course of his cross-examination of the witness, elicited the fact that the horse usually attached to the cart was at the time assisting another cart up the hill- Witness had previously cautioned defendant and another haulier named John Elliott against the practice, and the latter bad been also summoned. Mr David, for th3 defence, raised the point that this roadway was not public in the sense implied by the statute, inasmuch as it was not repairable by the public. It was well kncwn as a private road, repair- able by the owner (the Marquis ofBate). The Chairman stated that it was desirable to have an adjournment of the case to afford consideration of the important point raised. Mr David asked before this was done the Bench shoald decide upon the facts of the case after hearing his defence. Major Thornley: I can speak personally as to this being a very great nuisance. The carts are left there for an unreasonable time, and at times completely block up the highway. The only thing is for the Brick Company to purchase an extra horse. At the present time it is a very great nuisance. Mr J. S. Batchelor: We will adjourn the case until next Wednesday week. A similar charge against the man Elliott was also adjourned.
