Based on a topic in the Decriminilised Forum, we have a case of a driver who has driven in a lot of bus lanes in a car owned by his father who lives in Pakistan.

So what really is the legal situation? Could you have someone deliberately register a car in the name and address of someone who lives in a country where it will be hard to chase the debt, and then the driver can essentially make any moving traffic offence they like without risk? (Some may risk police action, particularly if dangerous, but bus-lanes wouldn't be one of those).

Obviously parking runs the risk of a tow.

In the original post on the De-Crim forum, the owner has not resided in the UK for 3 years - I think this might be stretching "forgetfulness" a bit far!
The OP has also admitted that he has no contact with the Address on the V5, which hardly complies with the Law IMO.

Oh sure, if Mr Grayling were to prosecute that OP for using an incorrectly registered vehicle I doubt he would be able to defend the charge in court.
