Regarding the letter I got from TFL as Single Justice Procedure Notice. What should I do next ?
Customer: replied 19 days ago.
On the 14th Sep I did send them email regarding my statement. But they didn't reply, so they send me the letter of Single Justice Procedure Notice.

To achieve what?

Sorry to be difficult but I really need you to ask a specific question.

Asking 'what is the next step' could be answered by saying "plead guilty at court" but that is probably not what you are asking.

Customer: replied 19 days ago.
Given the situation I explained before, I do not feel guilty. Is it neccessary to plead guilty in that case? Do I have any other options? Or returning a letter with 'plead guilty at court' statement is the only thing I can do now?
