Given: a webpage to scrape.
If you inspect the DOM tree of that page you will find that quite a few tags are having the keyword dist. As an example:
<link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/x-icon" href="/wcsstore/ColesResponsiveStorefrontAssetStore/dist/30e70cfc76bf73d384beffa80ba6cbee/img/favicon.ico">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/wcsstore/ColesResponsiveStorefrontAssetStore/dist/30e70cfc76bf73d384beffa80ba6cbee/css/google/fonts-Source-Sans-Pro.css" type="text/css" media="screen">
The presence of the term dist is a clear indication that the website is protected by Bot Management service provider Distil Networks and the navigation by ChromeDriver gets detected and subsequently blocked.
