We have a letter stating we were going 35 mph in a 30 mph

Resolved Question:

We have a letter stating we were going 35 mph in a 30 mph zone
However, when the photo evidence arrived the top left hand stated 35kph
When we challenged this they resent the photo stating this was a computer error. The new photo now shows just the number 35 on not kph or mph
Where do we stand on what we see as changed evidence?

Can you please let us know where we stand.I was going to write to them stating the following - do you think I should
1.The amended evidence just refers to 35 - there is not claim it is mph or kphWe were just keeping up with relatively heavy traffic having bee directed down this route due to heavy traffic on the M3We are also at present unable whether it was myself or my husband who was driving and the photo does not show who was driving

Sadly if you dispute it, the matter would go to Court and they could seek to amend the charge. Its clear its meant to be mph and nothing else, as mph is used in the UK.

So there is no really issue - everyone knows it should read mph. It wont be dismissed on this ground.

Its also not a defence to say you were keeping up with traffic.

It is up to you as owner to name all those who could have been driving.

You need to name all those who could have been driving - that is your legal obligation, nothing more

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

If we are not sure does that mean we both may get points?
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.

no, either one or another, not both.

Does that clarify? Alex
