Hello I am a solicitor with over 15 years experience. I will try to help you with this,
What is the offence alleged and is there a request to identify the driver? Does anyone else drive the vehicle?
the offence is speeding at 35mph on a 30mph road in cardiff
we were on holiday in cornwall and this is nonsense
no the car has been sitting on our drive at home and neighbours will testify to this end
we have been no where near wales
just wondered is this is some sort of scam
I doubt it is a scam. I would suggest your wife responds denying the offence and explaining why. It might be worth requesting the photographic evidence as you may be able to see if it wasn't your car in the picture? Do you live near Cardiff and do you have any teenage or adult children?
hi I am putting a letter together asking for photographic evidence and explaining how it could not possibly be my wife and we live in bucks and have no children
as we have 28 days will not return nip until we have this evidence ,, by law do they need to supply this evidence
and what happens when we see this so called evidence ,, which of course will not be correct
they do not have to but usually will. Some forces let you view it on line others send a copy. When you see it you will need to respomd according to what you see.
ok how should we respond
as it is also an offence not to return documentation on within 28 days
what happens if they do not supply photo evidence
Then you will need to respond to the NIP denying the offence and if there is a request to identify the driver explain why you can't. You should preserve evidence of your whereabouts at the time. (holiday booking, receipts in Cornwall on the day of the offence etc) If a neighbour was asked to keep an eye on your place you should probably get a statement from him about the car not seeming to move. If you have points on your licence yo should think about instructing a lawyer in order to minimise the risk of a ban.
sounds like a plan many thanks,, will send covering letter with nip
can we advise at a later date when we have a response from welsh safety camera unit I have sent letter registered asking for photographic proof
