the officer came to see me and my wife with a road traffic form already wrote out, he said he was on his way home when he saw 2 moped riders weaving along the road, my son told him there were potholes in the road but the officer just told him to sign the form, I refused my son to sign until I seek advice. this officer had booked my son 3 months ago for riding a moped with no insurance, moped was his friends and his friends insurance did not cover my son and my sons insurance was only 3rd party.
the officer looked up the reg number the following day on police computer, then looked at the last offence my son had then decided to book him for driving/riding without due care and attention, the other moped rider has not been reported for any thing and he is willing to go to court and say about the pot holes.
I understand that, the office never got the other riders reg number only my sons. so is ok to use the other riders statement, in a court that's if it goes to court?
