3 years and 9 months ago, me, my friend and his girlfriend went for drive to take away shop. i was turn right which the traffice light show the greem arrow so i turn, i was like doing 10 mph. then next thing, the car hit me on other side of the road. so three week later since car crash, police has been phone to me that i will have three points for dangerous/careless driving but why? i only turn when the green light show! so police said they will send me letter to fill in and send licence with the form but letter didnt come for over 3 years and 9 months, no letter and no calls! and now my friend told me that he will get compo for injury claim and he said that i will get three points soon? why i wait three years and 9 months for? why they didnt give me points over three years ago? i feel like i want to take it to court because i dont want to take points after 3 years and 9 months since car crash. any adivce? should i speak to solicitor about it? thanks

There is a lot missing from your story...the Police cannot give you points UNLESS you were given an FPN and didn't decline it (not sure you can get an FPN for careless though)...you may have been summonsed (using the address you gave at the time) which you may have moved from, if you didn't get a summons and were convicted in your absence then you can make a statutory declarartion to get that overturned, bizarrely of course the 3 points you got then have expired for tooting up purposes although a fine will still be payable.

How have you found out you now have 3 points? You need to chase the DVLA to find out which court or mechanism was sued to give you three points, and come back for advice based on that.

I'm not sure if this is relevant to motoring law but In my experience as a victim, a Personal injury claim has to be submitted within 3 years of the incident. How is your 'friend' claiming?

so your friend say's you are to get 3 points, looks like he is a bit of a wind up merchant, some friend hey! (your post is a little confusing but the gist says you did not get a letter from the police) if this is correct then forget it, you aint getting one. tell you friend to go and "£&^!£" off"

In that case it sounds like a summons was sent to an address (possibly the vehicle owner?) due to your continued non attandance at court you have been convicted in your absence, you need to find out which court awarded these points and make a statutory declaration to the effect you never recieved the summons, the conviction should be set aside, and as they can't prosecute you more than three years after the event, they can't then prosecute!

No point adding insults to others, it won't help you and clouds the issue for us!

I don’t know if its your grammar, but there are substantial contradictions in your story, in your first post its your friend that said you’ll get points, in last posted, its not him but his girl friend that said you’ll get points. Is it a wind up ? if so please give over as people are busy



Give us a chance and write things down in the order they happened



When was the police phone call ( how long after incident)

What did they say

Have you moved house in the mean time ( how long after incident)

Who told you were going to get points

How did they know this



Is some body making a claim against your insurance if so who and when did they first claim
