Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know whether the safety camera partnership responded to your fax?
Ok - but they wont know withdraw the fixed penalty and give you the course?
I think the difficulty is if you fail to do the course, they only have 6 months to summons you to Court for the offence from the date it occured.
Indeed. This is a really tough one. You can't sue for breach of contract between you and Richmonds because an offence has been committed. If I am being honest they have just been a bit rubbish.
Sadly given you can't really make the Police give you the course but then you can't sue Richmond for a contractual issue I think all you can do at this stage is seek reimbursement from Richmond of the £100 fine.
The points you can't quantify but the penalty you can.
I dont think you can force WM to give you the course.
You need to write to Richmond and set out your losses and request a refund within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.
If they do not refund you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court.
The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.
If the matter is defended it will be set down for a trial. If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim and you will not need representation.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes you accept the fine.
The Court can't order the Police to give you the cours.e
You accept the offence
Can I clarify anything else for you?
You enclose a copy of the Police letter and say because of your delay I can't now do the course and have to accept the £100 fine. Because of your delay I want the £100 fine back
Great. If I could ask you to rate my answer before you go, the button should be at the bottom of the screen
