This one is mysterious: friend of mine has a vehicle service and MOT garage business and has received a letter through the post from the Police entitled INTENTION TO PROSECUTE.

 

 

The NIP (if that’s what it is) states the offence as driving a mechanically propelled vehicle without due care and attention on the public road and it lists a vehicle that was brought into the garage but they did not work on.

 

 

It is addressed to the garage business and not to an individual; it says to identify the driver or any other information

 

 

In short the car was brought in and there’s a note in the garage log that says ‘vehicle details and EML’ which means Engine Management Light.

 

 

No invoice was raised for the vehicle and no work was carried out, it’s only a small garage and neither of the 2 mechanics drove the vehicle.

 

 

One of them remembers the person bringing it in, the mechanic had a quick look and said it needed further diagnostics and gave the customer a card and the hourly rate, the Customer then left and never came back.

 

 

How do they respond to this?

 

 

They can’t identify the driver as no one drove the vehicle, also a notice of this kind cannot be via a camera so surely the driver was pulled over at the time?

 

 

There’s no photo evidence in the letter.

 

 

I reckon the car driver was pulled over by Plod, then went to the nearest garage to log a visit so he could say it wasn’t him driving.

Just tell the old bill exactly what you've described above.


Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!
