No, it's one of his contract worker's that had parked there, but the van is registered to my son. So it is now my son's problem.

The only way to ensure that it will not lead to legal action is to pay in full. The chances they will sue are pretty low but they could. Nobody can guarantee he is safe unless he pays.If he was not the driver then he could have disclosed the name of the driver within 28 days of the notice to avoid liability but I would imagine he is out of time now.If he is prepared to risk being sued then the chances he would escape are high but it is a risk.In fairness, the costs order would not be onerousCan I clarify anything for you?Jo
