Because you were stuck.

Having got stuck some hours earlier, you might try various approaches to extricate your vehicle and not seek outside assistance until your own efforts had all failed.

It gets dark from around 5pm..... that's a whole 5 hours to try and extricate your vehicle.

It was only yesterday that they were telling us that all the mud had disappeared.

I enjoyed the spectacle of some dweeb that left his car on a slipway in Dinan France and went off on a jolly in his speedboat. The tide came back before he did and someone called the Pompiers.

They connected a chain to his car and pulled it out of the water.

When the dope came back they then issued him a nice hefty ticket for the prvilege.

We should have similar arrangements here - call it an 'idiot tax' if you will.

why did he not get out of the car himself. If only the car was stuck could he not open a door?
Mind you with some people even this could be a challange......

If it was a Toyota Hilux it would have been safe leaving it, just look what Top Gear done to one and the thing kept on running.

Might have been a bike rider who thought it was a free car parking spot whilst he went for a bike ride.

Please remember this is England the land of the free and the land of the blame culture, weak criminal justice system, social engineering and no deterrent sentences policy,failing Police Service, capital city of the do gooder's and weak Lilly brigade.

This poor driver should be given a placement on a university degree course not punished.
