They could, but in practice they simply don't bother most of the time.

Not least because in the absence of some independent evidence it would be a case of "he says, she says". "Beyond reasonable doubt" seems problematic, I would suggest.

If I were the OP I would be sending a Subject Access Request to the DVLA to see exactly what their records do say.


How exactly would you go about doing that?

That's a really difficult one..

I have found an expert who was military trained in laser targeting devises. In his own words, he has worked on complex military grade laser targeting of high speed projectiles far exceeding the capabilities of a prolaser 4 and given the evidence I have shared with him, he can confirm that there is no way that the prolaser 4 could have accurately detected me.

To be brutally honest, that's crap. Pointing a handheld device at a vehicle approaching more or less head-on at a range of a few hundred metres, to an accuracy of a metre or so, isn't difficult - try it yourself with a camera. Of course targeting a (probably crossing) high speed projectile would be more difficult, but that's not the issue.

He's asked the USA for Political Asylum.

I'm not sure what good he thinks that would do him, even if The Orange were to be deluded enough to make it happen. It's not as if a SEAL team are going to abseil into a UK prison to extract him back to the US, is it?

Like this, for example. biggrin.gif

An uninsured Lamborghini has been seized by police after the owner used it to pick up his other car - also confiscated for not being insured.

Greater Manchester Traffic Police tweeted the Lamborghini Aventador - worth more than £290,000 new - seized at Eccles police station was now "on its way to join his other car".

You might, but it would be very brave of a ticketing victim to simply trust an unknown third party to deal with it and reimburse any costs should they fail, without seeing a consistent track record of them delivering on that commitment.

Is this too good to be true?

At the very least you might like to consider what kind of track record a 5 month old company can actually demonstrate to substantiate its claims? Or what's backing up their commitments, when it's such a very new private limited Company with one 28-year old Director, who also owns at least 75% of the Company, using an accommodation address?

I explained a lot to concil and mp and councillor and school governer. But none wants to help this time. For april absence mp and senior council staff and councillor indirectly helped me and that was thought to have been resolved. But when i had to go in october council jlined both absences and sent me to court.

Hardly surprising, is it? They helped you with the previous penalties, but you still went ahead and did it again in full knowledge that you were breaking the law. This is only likely to end one way.

That used to be the case when all red routes were under TfL. Now other authorites are creating their own red routes with their own rules regarding mororcycles in bus lanes.

I bow to your superior knowledge of London Red Routes. In this case I was at least partially correct, as the A1, in that area anyway, is a TfL Red Route. smile.gif

We don't know that the motor cyclists that were legitimately riding in the bus lane.

We do, because the A1 in Holloway is a Red Route - and motorcycles are allowed in Red Route bus lanes.

In all honesty he was shocked when he blew positive and is not the sort of guy to doubt the equipment or the procedure.

I don't really know why he was shocked. A roadside test reading of 46 shortly after finishing 2 pints isn't shocking, nor is it having dropped to 40 on an evidential test some time later. Unless he's a big guy, 2 swift pints of all but the weakest session beer is risky.

Was he entitled to ask for a blood sample ?

I believe that entitlement was repealed.

It seems that the statutory option of a blood test was repealed by schedule 11 of the Deregulations Act 2015 and as of 10th April 2015 suspected drink drink drivers can no longer rely on the statutory option. I thought it happened longer ago than that TBH.

Their internal review also said they stand by original decision and told me to contact FOI commission.

They r not even willing to log my request in one case. Quiet.

So they have responded to your FOI request, and you've presumably challenged their refusal to release (some? all?) of the information you requested (otherwise what would the internal review be for?)? It would be a lot easier for people to advise you if you gave complete information rather than vague snippets coloured by your own interpretation.

Thanks i will use whatdotheyknow website. I wish i had done on this website earlier. I emailed council's freedok of information officers but they have not provided lot of information.

What does that mean - have they answered it or not? If they have answered your FOI request then they're likely to just reject it if you simply repeat it, or at most refer you to their previous response. The whatdotheyknow website isn't some magic bullet, just an easy way of doing what you've already done (and share the reply).

Just a shame he had that last half pint on an empty stomach and was immediately breathalyzed after being honest with the officer.

They didn't need his admission to have reasonable suspicion and justify breath testing him - the smell of alcohol on his breath would have been enough.

so in terms of the wording the only was it loses is with not being fixed because its at the front clearly visible.

the only reason i wanna contest is the massive power trip these guys were on

but dont wanna get higher cost ie court fees

Looking at that photo you're also going to have difficulty with:
QUOTE
vertically or, where that is not reasonably practicable, in a position as close to the vertical as is reasonably practicable,


If you go to court and lose then you are going to incur significant additional costs. To win you probably need a very sympathetic court, particularly as the plate hadn't just fallen off but had been removed the previous day.
