Hi - what were the dates of this fine and did you formally appeal it with that information?
Are you prepared to risk being sued?
Well, for instance, because they say you owe them money?
Ok. So are you prepared to risk being sued?
In that case, just ignore them unless they actually issue a court summons.
They used never to sue anybody. It is fair to say they are becoming more aggressive now basically because they need to regain control of the industry.
If they do then you can always put them to prove upon adequacy of signs and the like.
Can I clarify anything for you?
the issue is not who was the driver.
The issue is who was the registered keeper.
There is no way around receiving their letters. They will continue to write.
No, they wont.
the liable person is the registered keeper unless he names the driver within 28 days of the issue of the fine.
Yes, but you were at the time.
I'm really sorry but I'm not going to be able to tell you that the mix up with the DVLA means there isn't a claim against you.
It might well be one you can successfully defend but that is a different point.
No problem and all the best.
