A man drove along a Dundee pavement and towards a traffic warden after she gave him a parking ticket.
Shafiq Latif, of Baldovan Road, appeared to carry out the manoeuvre on Strathmartine Road to give traffic warden Maureen Feuntos “a fright”, Dundee Sheriff Court heard.
Fiscal depute John Adams said Latif had parked his car near to the Kingsway roundabout, on November 10 last year.
The fiscal said: “The accused’s car was parked with two wheels on the pavement and on double yellow lines.
“The complainer, who is a traffic warden, placed a ticket on the windscreen and stood around two metres back from the vehicle, with her back against a wall.
“The accused returned to his car and revved the engine and drove towards the lady.
“The car missed her by inches and appeared to be driven at her to give her a fright.”
Solicitor Scott Norrie, defending, told the court Latif is married and a “family man”.
Latif admitted one charge of dangerous driving on November 10 last year, by driving along the pavement and towards Ms Feuntos.
Sentencing, Sheriff Drummond told Latif: “This lady was just doing her job.
“She had her back against a wall and you missed her by inches, which makes this serious.”
The 33-year-old was disqualified from driving for one year and given a £600 fine.
