September 28th 2013 - offence
8th Oct - first notice
5th Nov - reminder, which was the one we filled in.
My defense Summary
The reminder notice was filled in and posted. My husband has written a witness statement where he declares that it was posted.
I am a law aiding citizen as is my husband with an unblemished police record. I have a full-time position with a certain amount of responsibility; it is not in my interest or the interests of my family to break the law. I am distraught to be in this position.
My husband accepts the speeding charge and this is not in question. However, I plead not guilty to failing to supply the driver’s details as I feel I had made every reasonable effort to do so and there was no way for me to know this had not happen.
The reminder notice(dated 5th Nov) stated that my husband was the driver and we believe it was posted within 48 hours of being received, We were not disputing who was driving so yes unequivically named my husband.
Yes only he was named.
I am not sure what you mean by qualification - we did not include and comments, questions or challenged anything.
The crux is they say I did not give the info I say I did and my husband is willing to testify that he posted the form which he filled in and I checked and signed as the log keeper.
Yes I think it was the S172, it was just the run of the mill, I don't think it asked for any additional info.
No just normal post
I am assuming they didn't recieve it and that is way I am being procecuted, in their evidence they submit a blank copy (the police copy) of both the first notice and the reminder notice. Both are signed by staff off and stated they posted them first class.
The Crown are accusing me of not supplying the info, they have not asked if I have sent it or have they said they did not receive it. There is no way for my to communicate with them and have this conversation.
That is helpful thank you
