What would you like to know about this?
Hi. I can call but not until tonight as I'm in a trial
Is that OK?
I can carry online now.
Probably about 20.00hrs?
At a conference then.
I might be about to do about 16.00hrs but it depends when we are released.
OK. I'm not really sure what you are asking?
Are you asking if you are entitled to more evidence?
Not at this stage.
If you contest the matter at trial they will have to serve their evidence 7 days before the trial.
But the fixed penalty procedure is just a means of diverting cases away from court. It is essentially an offer to deal with it administratively. To accept or refuse that you are not entitled to sight of their case.
That said, it might be worth a punt at court. Quite often they forget to summons.
Can I clarify anything for you?
You won't get extra points.
The financial penalties are higher.
You also can plead guilty by post and then you have put them to proof to the extent that you have waited to see if they remember to summons.
Six months from the date of the offence.
The penalty is roughly 125-175% of your weekly income plus costs of £85. You might well get less but that is roughly the amount.
All the best
