  1. Hi, I am worried to death. Last Thursday 27 September 2018, I became aware that I had not one, but three Notices of Prosecution (NoP) against me for speeding in the same location. They are all SP30s from consecutive days, i.e. 17, 18 and 19 September. Naturally I was shocked and confused by this as I had not seen a camera flash or any police speed van in the area and wasn't aware I was doing anything wrong, just going about my normal everyday commute to the office in line with the regular traffic flow. I went and looked for the camera on the road in question but couldn'
  2. Hi everyone, I've done some digging, and see that 25 out of the 28 EU countries now share details if a foreign car is noted committing certain traffic offences. An Italian car, say, is photographed speeding in France. The Italian authorities will give the French authorities the keeper's details and the fine will be sent to the person's home in Italy http://etsc.eu/faq-eu-cross-border-enforcement-directive/ This scheme does not apply to the UK - but the UK will join in May and presumably stay until Brexit, if not longer. I was wondering what forum members would a
  3. Good evening. My step daughter has just received a letter of Statutory notice to provide her details and also three alleged offences: RT 88218 - Failure to stop after a road accident RT 88220 - Failure to report an accident RT 88575 - Driving without due care and attention These are the result of an incident that I suspect many of us have experience during our driving careers. That of someone driving too fast and close to the middle of the lane down a country road, resulting in smashing each others drivers door mirrors. The incident occurred at 5.30pm on 3rd December and my
  4. Couldn't think where else to pose the question Any suggestions which body within England and Wales prosecutes s.50 offences and does anyone have access to any reported cases? Relevant section at the following link http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1974/39/section/50
  5. A service allowing motorists in England and Wales charged with summary motoring offences to enter a plea online is being launched by the government. People charged with a minor motoring offence such as speeding or not having insurance will be able to enter a plea 24-hours-a-day via a secure website. The gradual roll-out of the "Make A Plea" scheme from March follows a successful pilot in Greater Manchester. The government says it saves time and money for the criminal justice system. Last year saw 4.5m minor motoring offences processe
  6. In August 2013 (18 months ago) I visited Faro, Portugal. I hired a car with GoldCar, within 30 minutes of hiring the car, unbeknown to me I received a ticket for entering a no-go zone at Faro airport. I didn't know about this until I was back in the UK, 3 months later, I received a ticket in the post from the authorities at Faro Airport. The ticket was written all in Portuguese, so I had to get it translated! The rental company, charged 40ukp to my credit card for the privilege of passing my passport and DVLA details to the portuguese authorities! The ticket itself was for only
  7. Cllr David Allen,*Surrey Heath Borough Council*member for Frimley Green, said: “The company gives tickets to those people whose wheels are over the line and if you are over by a minute or two, they will ticket you. It has only been an issue in the last six months. "We are trying to do as much as we can, but we are also appealing to drivers for them to be responsible and not disregard the regulations.” http://www.getsurrey.co.uk/news/surrey-news/frimley-motorists-still-being-hit-8450443
  8. I was seen by an off duty police officer using my mobile phone and no seatbelt. They sent me a letter stating I can goto court or plead guilty in writing and without going to court.. Does anybody know what the maximum penalty/points this could carry? Somebody mentioned that if you are convicted of more than one offence you'd get points for 1 of the 2 offences, whichever carries the most number of points? Is this correct?
  9. A few days ago I made a silly mistake and turned into a one way road the wrong way! I realised my mistake almost straight away and pulled over to wait for a safe spot to do a U turn and correct my mistake, I was about 10 yards inside the junction. At this point a PCSO came running over to my car, screamed "You are going to get some points for that" at the top of her voice and then got onto her radio/phone device and asked "any officers near xxx street free to write a ticket" At which point a gap opened in the oncoming traffic so I did a quick U-turn and drove off in the correc
  10. Hi, I am fairly new to this, I couldn't find a legal forum, so I put it here since it started as motoring offences. My main question is this... What right do you have to a trial by jury? I have been right royally shafted by the courts, and I know that if there had been a jury I would have been acquitted. My case has now been through crown court.... Do I have any further right of appeal? What happens with fines... There was no means test applied to my case. Can I apply to have my fines reduced ? In crown court no mention of guilt, or sentence, nor the amount of fi
