i was banned for 6 months on the totting up basis.
i went to the appeal court and it was reduced to 3 months, so it should have finished on the 9th november 2013.
somehow the court advised dvla the ban was up on the 9th jan 2014.
i was arrested on the 6th jan and bailed until the 10th feb.
the charge of driving while banned was dropped.
it was hardship and the judge accepted this.
i got the transcript of the hearing to prove it, but i assume the police did the same and that is why they dropped the charge.
thanks that is very helpful.
but are you saying i cannot sue for compensation?
i was chased through the mersey tunnel by 2 police cars.
made to get out of my car, was manhandled into the back of a police car,
taken to a police station, searched and locked in a police cell for 3 hours,
had to tell 2 employers i had been arrested, very embarassing.
could not do one of my jobs due to not having car.
and none of this was my fault.
i believe i should be compensated for this.
