O’Halloran v Director of Public Prosections: 1989

A motorcyclist appealed against his conviction for having overtaken a line of vehicles driving down the outside of dashed white lines, only returning to the nearside when the lines became solid. He said that there was no white arrow painted to indicate the requirement to return to the nearside.
Held: The signage did not meet the staututory description and was ineffective to create the restriction. It was not lawfully placed on the road. The appeal succeeded.
