Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I am due to appear in court for a traffic offence. a company I did some cash in hand labouring for has a number of vehicles, one of which went through a speed camera at 57mph in a 50mph zone. the company owner said it was me driving and asked me to complete the form and return it to the police which I did. once the paperwork got to my address my partner noticed the offence took place on a Saturday when I had access to my daughter and that it couldn't have been me driving. there are many people who drove the company vehicles on a regular basis. I emailed the police to ask if it was possible to see the picture from the speed camera so I could try and identify the driver, the picture only shows the rear of the vehicle and its not possible to see who was driving. The court have sent me a summons telling me to appear in court and to bring my licence with me as the offence will carry point or even a ban. I cant seem to make anyone understand that I was not me driving, the police and citizen's advice say because I responded to the letter and asked for a photo that the court will convict me anyway. is this the case or will they understand that although I cant physicly prove it was not me driving, no one can prove that it was me? the company owner is just trying to pass blame onto me as I didn't officially work for his company, I was just used as part time cash in hand labour.
Any help/advice would be very gratefully appreciated.
