I'm a named driver on the bosses van.

I got 3 points in march for speeding through a traffic light camera (on green) that had sneekily been upgraded to clock speeding.
So 60 on a 40 dual carriageway to which I took the 3 points and a fine as a lesson learnt.

I do about 1000 miles per week most of which is motorways and I now use the van speed limiter on all roads to keep me legal.

2 weeks a go some t#%^ sent in his dash cam footage to the police showing my van closely following a hgv through a red light. Hgv was amber/red and my van was about 1 -2 second red.
His footage was on a next base camera showing time and date.
It was forward facing and it filmed the van passing him on the left in the same direction ( so no driver shot)
My boss says it's me but I don't remember taking that particular route on that day.
And since the speeding fine I've been triple careful so certainly not jumping lights.

Our lock up is 1/4 mile from this incident so both my boss and I both use these roads several times daily in that van.
He's adamant im taking the fine and given job security I'm short of ammunition to fight him.

There is a high council Cctv Dome camera over the junction ( traffic light/roundabout) but it could be looking anywhere.

The police seem to have gone straight for prosecution rather that questioning the accuracy of the footage.
If his date and time are wrong how are we supposed to know who was driving?

Has anybody ever come across 3rd party footage?

Help and advice would be appreciated.

The first notice arrived on the 24/7 so he has 2 weeks to accept , deny or name me.

Thanks
Dave

Is there mileage in an accompanying letter as per'rookie' explaining the confusion and that I am willing to take the offence but request the option of a course or would they throw that out as I'm admitting under duress.?


The mileage will be the distance to court, certainly do not send anything like that.

Income tax... Now there's another topic🙈

So is there a different course than speed awareness? I'm strongly tempted to use that option if it exists rather than rock the boat. The van is a major perk which can easily be taken away if I p*** him off.

If so and I say I was driving the van via the form.

Either you were driving the van, or you weren't. If you were, name yourself and if you're eligible for a course, you'll be offered one. If you're not eligible, no amount of begging will get you one.

No, I am not a lawyer.
