Hi,

 

Recieved an invoice in a private residential area a few weeks back. I am not the registered keeper the car is owned by my company hence my boss is the registered keeper.

 

After finding this site I ignored the invoice they then sent a letter to my boss saying that he is liable for the amount of £200 as he is the registered keeper. My question is whether this is true or whether it is the drivers responcibility?

 

Surely if there supposed contract of agreement is to be taken seriously then it could only be the driver that is responcible in the court of law?

 

Any advice? Should I get my boss to write a letter stateing I was the driver? What should he put in it?

 

Many thanks for any advice given.

You are indeed correct the contract, if any, was formed by the driver, a third party in this case the RK cannot be liable for any contract allegedy between the PPC and the driver. If the PPC has actually stated the RK is liable they have shot themselves in the foot, keep that letter safe and ignore any future letters.

 

Any advice? Should I get my boss to write a letter stateing I was the driver? What should he put in it?

 

NO, do not get your boss to engage them whatsoever. There is no legal requirement for him to name the driver. Leave the PPC hanging they will get fed up of being ignored and move on to someone else.

 

Many thanks for any advice given.

regards

Any alleged contract is between the driver and the company.

 

The contract will be rubbish and unenforceable, but nevertheless, the owner is in no way responsible.

 

To say otherwise is pure fraud and an offence under the 2006 Fraud Act.

 

Nothing will ever come of this ticket though - they have no intention of ever going to court, so go to town with the unlawful paperwork. It's a [problem] after all.

 

Do not contact them at all - it will only encourage them. Ignore everything and they will go away.

 

£200 is a bit high - is there any silly £3 a day charges? It usually increases to £300 before they give up and go away.

 

Show this thread to your boss and tell him to completely ignore the fraudulent tat.

It's total B*S* Only the driver could possibly have entered a contract (but of course he didn't anyway)

Yes, no contract = no money for them

 

Any advice? Should I get my boss to write a letter stateing I was the driver? What should he put in it?

As long as you can keep the boss on your side, the best policy is no contact with them what so ever. Not from you and not from your boss.

 

Many thanks for any advice given.

 

If they were stupid enough to take this to court, they would have to be suing the RK, which is your boss, who can presumably demonstrate instantly that he was not driving the car and therefore is not the subject of the claim. Case dismissed! :)

Thanks for taking the time out to reply guys. (even with my poor spelling of the word responsible:) )

 

The boss is on my side and I can fight it all the way but what I would prefer is for me to be reciveing the threats and ignoring them rather than him, it is against his company after all. How can I get around this?

You get your boss to shop you to the PPC as the driver. You then ignore if you wish.

Are there any laws or cases he could quote that anyone knows of?

Or should it just be along the lines of - I wasn't the driver 'X' was, all futher correspondence should be directed through 'X' for the alleged offence.

 

Obviously i'm no legal expert :p

 

For those interested I shall try and get some scans up later of the letter implying the registered keeper should pay and not mentioning the driver, also giving a box to tell them of change of owner

Thats all well and good but the reality is this isn't his problem it's mine and I shouldn't expect him to be the one who has to deal with it or waste any time on it.

My opinion, for what it's worth, is that it isn't your boss' problem, or yours!

 

It's the PPC that's got the problem, the problem being "How do we screw money out of these people, when we have no legs to stand on?"

 

Ignore 'em, it works, and they hate it!

Even if you tell them who was driving, chances are they won't pay any attention and return to harassing your boss if you don't respond.
