Insurance-cover Questions on Tractor Used to Move House
HOW a tractor was used to remove a three-roomed house was told at Aberdeen Sheriff Court on January 4. Mr. Edward Donald, agricultural contractor, MaryhilI, Greens, Monquhitter, pleaded guilty to having used a motor tractor on the public road without a proper third-party insurance policy being in force. He was admonished, A Gamrie farmer was also charged in connection with the case. He did not appear and a warrant was granted for his apprehension.
Mr. Donald H. J. Mackay, deputyfiscal, explained that the insurance policy for the tractor covered its use for agricultural and forestry purposes, but not for the purpose for which it was being used when the police intercepted it. The accused was using it to move a house which belonged to a third man and had been built on the chassis of a disused lorry. The owner had lived in it at Millbrex for the past six years, and, having obtained employment near Forres, he decided to move there, getting the tractor to move the house along the road. Mr. Donald had two previous convictions for breaches of the same section of the Act.
Mr. G. H. M'Combe, for the accused, said that Mr. Donald had previously driven the tractor on the road for the farmer. It did not occur to him that he was acting outside the limits of the insurance.
