Why won't they apologise?
I'm afraid I cannot agree this is a DPA issue.
They were under an obligation to disclose the identity of the driver. That over rides the DPA. They got it wrong which is another issue. Obviously they should put that right.
It is perfectly reasonable to demand an apology if you can be bothered with committing the time. It is quite unlikely they would refuse but if they do there isn't a legal means of forcing an apology largely because it is fairly worthless.
The bigger issue here is that they have named you so
the current prosecution will be considered against you with which you must deal.
You could ask for an apology though. I wouldn't focus on that. I would focus on getting them to correct this which is the bigger issue and more worthy of your time and effort.
Can I clarify anything for you?
All the best.
