Full Version: Denying knowledge of Driver

In my local paper this week there's a small paragraph of a case where a man "failed to give information which could assist in the identification of a driver. Fined £150 with costs of £45".

It occurred to me that this would be a resonable thing to do if you were on, say, 9 points and there was no conclusive photographic evidence.

They still get the cash (in fact more cash, which is a shame), but it's probably better than losing your licence by incriminating yourself. I guess in some cases it may even be cost effective to do it on 6 points (to keep the insurance costs down).

Anyone else tried this or know of similar cases?

Hi,

Are you sure that the newspaper article is accurate? Most people are awarded 3 penalty points in addition to the fine etc. icon_redface.gif

True - they haven't mentioned anything about points, but they possibly haven't stated all the facts. Can't find the case on the web.
