Customer Question

Hi, I was caught speeding and flashed from the front by a road side police camera at night. I was driving my girlfriend's car and had no insurance. She mentioned she would just take the points if it comes through to avoid me being banned and loosing my job as it includes driving. Is this a good idea? if we pay it straight away is there still a chance they will investigate further?

Thank you for your question. My name is Jo and I will try to help with this. Do you remember your speed and the speed limit?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

The speed limit was 30 I must have been doing between 34 and 37.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 4 years ago.

Can we just be clear about this?

She is proposing to lie for you?

Has she already done this?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

She has not done this yet.

We discussed if the risk is great of getting caught we wont go through with it.

Is there a chance if we pay the fine straight away that that will be the end of it.

I understand your not going to advise us to lie but were trying to find a way round this or i loose my job and license.


Can she say it was her to start with as she didn't suspect it could have been anyone else with the chance of that working - and if they later question that with the images she could then say its me and didn't know.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 4 years ago.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 4 years ago.
