Looking for input and people’s opinions please, just so I get different views…
wife comes home annoyed with herself because she’s convinced she’s been caught by mobile speed camera,
few days later nip comes in post in my name ( I’m registered keeper) 34 mph in A 30 limit, from mobile camera in location and day time wife said…..
all simple so far
although I did consider accepting 6 points and fine rather than grassing Mrs up to police I have no respect or like of, wife insisted ( only because of big fine) I fill form in and return with her details,
form returned, fulfilling my section 172 Rta obligation as far as I’m concerned.
here’s where things get odd !
a few weeks later police send me second letter saying thanks for response however there appears to be a discrepancy so not able to transfer to nominated driver ( wife).
examination of photo evidence suggests driver is not person I named as age and or gender do not correspond with my nomination.
if I wish to view photo I can ask for it.
letter goes on to make threats and demands under s172 ( although I believe I’ve fulfilled my s172 obligation by completing nip )
In my opinion they obviously think my Mrs is taking points for me or something similar… obviously this isn’t the case, I’ve nothing to be worried about and chose to ignore the threatening letter…
I don’t see why I needed to ask for picture so didn’t, besides I’m not going to go out of my way to be overly helpful I’m no fan of police remember…
I’m of the opinion that if I see picture I’m privy to information I might have to share , besides my research tells me the photo has no other legal purpose than identifying the vehicle keeper from registration.
My attitude is I’ve fulfilled my legal requirements if they don’t believe me that’s not my problem, I’ll laugh at them in court.
Go forward around 6 weeks, I’ve had another letter saying that they can’t deal with this anymore and I’ll hear from the courts…
quick side note, my Mrs hasn’t been contacted by them…
obviously I’m assuming at some point I’m going to get a summons for either failing to supply information (s172 ) THE MORE SERIOUS OFFENCE.
or you never know the fools might even try perverting the course of justice.
so,,, that’s pretty much where I’m at, I’m looking for input please and feel free to tell me if I’m missing anything.
