If you do it yourself you need to focus on the issues that matter, the error in your height in no way has any direct impact on the manner in which he saw the car being driven, it’s only relevant if he’s talking about something that happened post crash (that may be relevant such as you fleeing the scene) to indicate that he was looking at the wrong person. So whether it’s worth raising or not is all down to context. Unless you don’t think they were at the scene at all!

It won’t automatically discredit it, no, the court will apply the weight to their testimony they based on the statements and what they say and your cross examination.

Bands A B and C are in the sentancing guidelines for court, if it doesn’t go to court for any reason they are as relevant as the colour of the sky.

42 would just qualify for a course, upto 50 (55 for some forces) would be a fixed penalty, no court, no sentancing guidelines used.

Your call entirely, if it happened as you said it’s hard to see a court convicting you.

Do you know for sure the Police car had a camera?

Indeed, but they then make a mockery of a claimed higher speed.

Originally 122basy claimed it was 100m....I know who said approximately but I think saying 50m is approximately 100m is a bit of a stretch.

There was approximately 100m of clear space

Please at least justify the calculation of 22mph, the OP has said his GPS log was 15mph which is some difference.

He took into account relative motion and position of the vehicles when working out the distances.

Which is nothing more than blah blah blah in terms of helping to understand how it was calculated and whether any accuracy is involved! Relatives are OK but you would need at least one absolute other than time!

It takes 7.5 seconds to travel 50 metres at 15 mph.

As the crash occurs sooner than that, it was either less than 50 metres away or the speed was greater than 15mph.


Except the 50m came from the time multiplied by the OPs stated 15mph, so anything after that is a supposition.

Ignoring that there is no requirement in the type approval for it to be annually calibrated (well checked as there is rarely if ever any need for any adjustment) anyway, the police may drop it as 'not in the public interest' but that's a different decision.

Strange attitude to take when you had done the same.

However to counter PE will argue they use the 10 minute grace as the period of stay is more than 10minutes over the permitted time (by 8 seconds), it will depend then on the exact wording of the signs in terms of the start and finish time of the period of 'parking'.

PP do use court, and stating early on they weren't the keeper and who was seems entirely the actions of a reasonable person. the OP wasn't responsible for the ticket so why should he have to put up with the hassle?

Unless the garage deny being the keeper there would be a clear DPA issue with them continuing to chase someone who had provided the details of the person they should be chasing.

The offence is unnecessary obstruction, all parked cars cause some level of obstruction, there are degrees of it and they may have decided yours was the one with it's 'toe over the line' between what was and was not unnecessary, that's a subjective assessment (and duration parked can be a factor) and you're very unlikely to win that given what you say.

I'm afraid you fall into the 'I took a gamble and lost' category here.

Where did you get then measurements from? All very colourful but impossible to comment unless (as my Maths teacher used to tell me) you show your working.

As people with one arm are allowed to drive (usually with a steering wheel spin knob) I don't see why you cant drive with a cast, the issue would be were you in control, that is would you have the same control as someone who learnt and was tested like that.

Just wait, once its gone before the SJ they'll send it to court who will then allocate a slot and send you the details, 6 weeks isn't unusual.

And Logician isn't the policeman clearly lying by all accounts when he stated that it was obstructing a driveway. It absolutely wasn't

It a matter of opinion, a lie is a lie when you know its untrue, if you are mistaken its not a lie, but as you don't know that parking on the road without an MOT is an offence I'd not want to rely on your interpretation of anything else perhaps?

If the OPs 15mph is correct then in the 7 seconds from van pulling out (not car) to impact he travelled 51m, actually less of course due to the braking.

That looks nothing like 100m to me, I think your forgetting the foreshortening effect of most CCTV, given the house sizes that’s probably circa 50m.

However the car was behind the van, your not meant to (legally) have to second guess what someone else may do THAT THEY SHOULD NOT even if self preservation may say otherwise.

The cyclist was there to be seen, course and speed were constant, the car driver should have given way as per the signage, he chose to blindly (literally) follow the van through.

I agree, but if the trial date is the end of this month he probably should have objected in writing by now I would have thought, the paperwork would confirm.

It wouldn't be your only defence point though would it?

The court would decide on balance of probabilities who to believe, no-one can predict that.

I would disagree with your interpretation, they have failed to give way which is something wrong.

On your interpretation millions of give way signs become meaningless and we would have our own equally chaotic version of 'prioritee a droit'.

Maybe include in #1 a GDPR-related point. Considering the circumstances, they (the data controller) must contact you first before handing over your details,

I would disagree, its either lawful or its not, if it is lawful there is no need for the DC to contact the subject, if its unlawful they shouldn't be handing it over regardless, so I think that adds nothing.

PCN - Penalty Charge Notice, the thing the council sent you in the post. They have to make the video of the event available to appellants.
