Unless there are factors you haven’t mentioned then this is certain to result in the offer of a fixed penalty of 3 points and £100. You would be well advised to accept that as if it went to court it will be a lot worse!

If there is no mention of PoFA it’s non compliant, please scan or photo the rear and post.

Is anyone realistically going to appeal those sums to a crown court?

I’m not disagreeing with your viewpoint, I’m just saying given the number of cases w were we have feedback where it’s hapoened we shouldn’t give advice that ther would be no disadvantage at all, just that there shouldn’t be one?

I would agree it’s how it should be, but we’ve seen plenty of feedbacks where it hasn’t been the case that saying it will happen is ‘optimistic’.

you should really have nothing to lose.

Potentially £115, I’ve not heard of any case where the courts adjusted the fine down to £70 to allow for the surcharge, in addition some haven’t waived the £85 prosecution costs.

Do you know the alleged speed/limit?


This would be good to know. If you (OP) are in CoFP territory there is an opportunity of a time out on this one if they do not receive your nomination until the end of the 28 day period.

Or the possibility of the case going straight to court if a CoFP could result in a timeout, most the camera teams are now using good enough computer control now to know when to, and when not to, issue CoFP's because of that, the days when timeouts where common has passed. If it goes to court it risks a fine and costs of upto £215 if costs and surcharge aren't allowed for in the fine.

If the company pays mileage for these "extra" journeys, then it seems to be business use. Paying for commuting would be very unusual.

Not at all, when the company transferred me to an office further away I got business mileage for the incremental journey but my insurance company were happy it was my new permanent place of work for the duration. I don't see how asking someone to come in (on an extra journey) and paying for it differs from that, and its still travel to and from a permanent place of work which is how commuting is usually defined.

Only the landholder can employ them, the communal areas between the garages could still under the control of the Development corporation or the council (but not under the highways department), and yes the council can do it unless it comes under highways.

Atkinson is an older case but still establishes the principles you should be using when trying to contend the court having no jurisdiction if the proceedings were commenced late.

It's an SJPN by the way.

Have no effect at all as evidence for a criminal investigation is exempt.

The citation IS what calls you to court, they could have just posted it anyway.

Because it’s totally irrelevant, yours was either issued in time or it was not, unless you believe it’s been cheated with a date that is not real (in which case the other data would be no more reliable), you don’t have a balance of probablilities approach here but black and white.

If yours was the only one of a million in time, you are still guilty (all other facets assumed proven).

if it is just a letter with a request then I don't see there is any legal obligation to reply at all.

An S172 request can be in the form of a letter and yes there is a legal obligation to reply!

NO, we need that! Just personal details (name address and reg number) and the PCN number.

PE will argue that as the driver couldn't pay they should have left the car park.

HOWEVER if it said 'not in use' as opposed to 'out of order' I think that changes the ball game somewhat, to me 'not in use' implies they are not using the machines and the driver doesn't have to pay while out of order could imply the driver cannot pay as required and should leave.

I am looking at a business case to take forward to make sure all engineers are legally covered and paid correctly for using personal vehicles to attend out of hours calls.

I used to work for a company that provided the insurance cover for all pre-approved business mileage, they paid a lower p/mile than HMRC allow (with no tax liability - so circa 25-35p/mile depending on the vehicle instead of the 45p/mile) but it meant you would have no nasty surprises from things like a stone damaged windscreen etc.

Why send them pictures? I was once told by a former traffic cop "it tis their job to provide evidence to prosecute you, not your job to provide them with that evidence".

Because its almost certain to be a lot less painful to be seen as some cooperative and innocent that perceived as furtive and guilty.

In addition if it really is a cloned (as opposed to a misread) plate then there are almost certainly more coming, a letter from the force agreeing its a clone can then be used elsewhere.

It sounds like commuting to and from a regular place of work to me, whether paid mileage or not, but it would certainly fall within class 1 business use which as Fredd points out is pretty much free anyway.

Is this the 2 cars going in opposite directions @ 50mph is the same as 1 car going into a wall @ 100mph myth?

Pretty much unless there is a huge disparity in vehicle weights, even then it gets nowhere near to 100mph equivalent, sounds good when telling horror stories though. (not that a crash at 50mph is something to enter into lightly of course).

Indeed, because you were told more than once you were inside the course and there was NO way out.

Failing to plan was planning to fail!
