If they have the BSmark and the makers name then they should be legal.

I suggest you brush up on the requirements and then if stopped against point out the BS Mark, makers name etc.

In addition does it display correctly to the front, not sat at a funny angle?

Unfortunately your reply has to be unequivocal, by trying to be honest you did the exact wrong thing, you should have just named the most likley driver, no ifs, buts or maybes.

I’m not expert on this but it doesn’t sound legal to me, nor does attempting to break into it.

Had it been towed you have to pay for the tow, also any fixed penalty or take it to court (as it was a police officer there wouldn’t likely by a PCN).

So it has a Statury Off Road Notification and yet was parked on a public road?

I think that answers your question?

My commiserations on your loss.

Were there cameras there? The vast majority of red lights have no cameras, and most camera boxes are empty at any one time, more boxes than cameras to put in them.

It’s possible the Police may be understanding to a greater or lesser degree, let’s see what you get first. If you get a notice, DO NOT reply immediately but make sure you have all the notices you are likely to get first so a strategy can be formulated.

Running a red light to save/protect life could be a defence (or at least classed as Special Reasons Not to Endorse - punish if you like) but your circumstances do not count legally as a defence, but again let’s see what happens first.

It would have been about that if towed.

My understanding is they can only charge for an actual tow, maybe you misunderstood what you were told.

A PCN is civil, a Traffic OFFENCE Report is criminal.

Presumably for unnecessary obsctruction?

If you definitely have a PCN then that needs to be addressed in the council and decrim forum.

That has to be a hoax, no-one who works in council parking departments has a sense of humour!

Looks like a template for FMOTL type appeals.

OK, so the case has progressed a lot further than you indicated.

Perverting the course of justice is a serious offence, the court wil take it very seriously and will not consider it heavy handed at all, it is considered as cutting to the heart of the justice system.

There are lots of cases of people turning a minor speeding offence into a jail sentence by attempting to pervert the course of justice.

To be honest I see little chance of an an acquittal so he’s into damage limitation, being aware of the implications of the conviction on future job prospects and travel where visas are required.

For a 20 limit...
Upto 24, no action
24-31 a speed awareness course would be offered
31-40 a fixed penalty would be offered
41 and up a court case where a ban would be considered, or 6 points which would lead you to a totting ban.

QUOTE (Dwain @ Thu, 21 Mar 2019 - 13:51) *
The law regarding motoring offenses never ceases to amaze me, if I break into a house with cameras and I am wearing a balaclava to disguise/cover my identity they wouldn't dream of doing me for PCOJ, do the same on a vehicle and it's game on.

Its got nothing to do with motoring offences, its to do with perverting the course of justice, this is about taking an action after an offence has been committed to prevent detection.

Besides a burglar will normally be spending time behind bars anyway making the PCOJ possibility less of a disincentive.

What makes you think it needs a photo?

What was the basis of the appeal?

Did it identify the driver (a simple yes or no)?

Full name of parking company please.

Read the FAQ ref uploads, but make sure you redact identifying details first.

Check very carefully, they 'must' give you a code.

They have authority from someone to operate, usually its the managing agent acting outside their authority.

Do you have an allocated space or is it a free for all?

Find out EXACTLY what your lease says.

I took it as read he was in his probation period.

If the MS90 is set aside and he's then convicted of the underlying offence, how does that circumvent the will of parliament?

I never went back/haven't been back to the old place I was renting at back in 2009; I never thought there was any need/reason to. I didn't really get any post there anyway...

It sounds like you didn't bother getting your licence address updated either?

Have you/she tried ACAS, both the website and the help line are very good.

The issue is that if you have a low rate of detection/punishment you have to have a big punishment to act as the same effective deterrent. That said the doubling of the points to 6 seems to have had little effect. I've seen videos from Oz where a Police cyclist just goes up the queue, catches one, processes him, rinses and repeats, it doesn't actually take much resource.

Case in point here would be speeding, we have a 2-3 orders of magnitude increase in enforcement since the early 1990's when camera's started to appear on the roads, and while the court based punishment has been pretty consistent, as have fixed penalties (the increase from £60-£100 being a big step but averaged over time about the same as inflation) we've seen an overall softening via the use of courses.

Most level crossings are monitored by BTP not the local constabulary, I don't think they offer courses.

You're lucky its a camera, a manned unit would probably have reported you regardless for contravening the amber.

When I leave work I pass a queue of about 20 cars at a junction, almost every day I can pretty much guarantee one if not two will be using the phone. Many are creeping in traffic (moving) while looking at the screen, or stationary with a huge gap in front as they've not noticed the traffic moving.

Really his best option is to be 100% helpful and constructive, that way an actual court case is less likely and if it happens a suspended sentence more likely.
I really can’t see he has anywhere he can push them other than by being as remorseful as possible.
How fast he was recorded at will also be a factor, but only a small one in my opinion.

IF a driver can be named then it will be tantalisingly close to a timeout (they have six months from the date of the offence to commence proceedings against the driver.

IF not you’ll be in court facing an S172 charge for failing to ID the driver.

Any reason why you can’t name the driver, or is it a case of its 90% one person 10% another?

Have you formally requested a reopening under S142? An appeal for a lost plea is madness, a complete waste of time and resources.

You don’t keep a slip, you give a slip to the buyer and send ALL the rest off.

You would have been sent a notice requiring you to name the driver at the time of an original offence (speeding or red light), when you didn’t you would have been summonsed for the offence of failing to do so, when that was ignored you would have been convicted in your absence, all normal, routine, regular and above board.

Yes if you get the conviction overturned via the MS90 you should get your original full licence back.
