Hi thank you for your message, although the obligation is upon the recipient of the Notice to supply information, there may be some circumstances, for example when a drive has been shared, which result in it being difficult to specify who was driving at the time. Although there is no obligation upon the Police to supply the photograph, they will normally do so. That said, the photograph only has to show the vehicle, not the occupants. All the Police have to supply is adequate information to identify the offence itself, i.e. time, location, vehicle registration and the alleged contravention. In this case, the picture is not clear enough to identify the driver and therefore your husband and son should respond the notice of intended prosecution explaining why you do not know if it was the husband or the son. It is still possible for the police to prosecute for failing to identify the driver but they should only do so where your husband and son have behaved unreasonably in failing to identify the driver which is not the case here. I hope this helps, if you can please accept my answer and rate me 5 stars (in the top right of your screen) then Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
