partner was stopped for speeding, doesnt deny it, but the ticket has a different road name to where he was stopped

 

can the ticket be fought on this, or is it better just to pay the £60 and take the points?

 

any help appreciated

they've put on the ticket the name of the road where he was stopped, not where the offence took place

 

While I suspect you are 'splitting hairs here', if the ticket catagorically states that the offence took place somehwere other than the actual location where it did, then the 'offence' has not been commited as described on the ticket. You must remember that the police will most likely have video evidence to support the ticket so before challenging it, I would speak to a solicitor first.

I would always urge to seek professional advice for clarification prior to taking any action.

He has probably received an FPN fromthe police to accept the offence and pay the fine/points base on that.

 

If he wishes to deny the offence (even if just because of the road name) it will proceed to magistrates court where the "proper" offence will be stated, which may include a correction to the road name involved. I think refusing an FPN based on this alone would be risky and may result in a higher fine.

Once it goes to court the mistake on the FPN will be irrelevant.

Entirely correct and even if the bench are minded to mirror a fine equivalent to that of the EFPN, i.e. £60, the ultimate "hit" on the OP's pocket is likely to be double that of simply paying the fixed penalty by the time you add in an award for costs (currently averaging between £48 and £63 and the completely inescapable Victim Support Levy of £15.

 

The only circumstances in which I could envisage that the OP might avoid the £60 is were he to be on benefits and even in those cases an assumption is generally made as to income and that can still result in higher fines than the EFPN.

 

Simplifying it EFPN = £60 plus a couple of stamps.

Going to Court = £60 (probably a minimum) + costs (average, say £55) + £15 Victim Support Levy = a total of £130
