Are you saying that they will offer him a fixed penalty and £200 and me nothing. Will this be the police or the court following a summons. Would special reasons not apply that I was unable to drive at the time as the cellulitis was spreading rapidly up already swollen and painful legs?
Thanks, ***** ***** apologies I was driving at the time and had to stop. Does Special Reasons only relate to belief of insurance or could it extend to this circumstance? I believe they have 6 months to lay the summons?
originally I was but had to stop, believing he was insured he took over and he was then caught for the speeding offence.
At the roadside the officer seemed satisfied as we thought he was and therefore believed us and only recorded the speeding offence on the traffic report. He said that it could take a few weeks to update. Due to the cellulitis and the temperature, confusion this was causing thought I had (although the insurance told me I hadn't) this confirmation from him furthered the confusion. The Traffic Report only has a speeding offence alleged therefore I suppose the issue of knowledge is whether the central ticketing office will check again before issuing a speeding Fixed Penalty Notice or rely on fact that the police officer did the check at the roadside and hasn't alleged driving without insurance.
