A woman who repeatedly struck two parked vehicles as she tried to move out of a parking space could be disqualified from driving.
Julie Rickards, 48, had been attempting to manoeuvre from a car parking space when she 'repeatedly' struck a Vauxhall Corsa and Mercedes Sprinter van in the car park at Longmead, off Long John Hill, Norwich.
Mel Read, prosecuting at Norwich Magistrates Court, said it happened after 8.30pm on September 14 last year.
She said Rickards 'collided repeatedly with other parked vehicles' as she tried to get her Vauxhall Vectra car out of the car park.
The court heard two vehicles sustained damage and scratches to the bodywork and cracked bumpers in the incident.
