Failing to provide information about the identity of the driver at the time of an alleged offence, often attracts a higher penalty than the initial road traffic offence.
However, often clients tell us that they have problems working out who was driving at the time. This can be for all sorts of reasons.
Maybe you run a small business and it’s not that straight forward to work out who was driving a particular car at the time of the alleged offence.
Or it may be the case that you have a large family who are all able to drive the car in question.
Either way, you may have a defence if you are unable to provide the details within the time frame specified.
There are often other good reasons why you may not be able to respond in time to a Notice of Intended Prosecution:
- you may never have received the Notice of Intended Prosecution sent out by the police;
- you were on holiday or in hospital and unable to reply in time;
- it was sent to the wrong address or;
- you are experiencing problems with your post.
There are lots of reasons why you may have a defence. Our experience tells us that these matters aren’t necessarily black and white and we are adept at arguing the issues with the court.
