Thanksfor the information
I'm not sure what you want to do at this stage.
If this is a section 172 request then you don'thave any option but to respond naming the driver. If you do not do that thenthey will just charge you with failing to identify which carries more pointsthan the main offence and a much higher fine .
There is no point in naming the driver andsending in correspondence that effectively argues that you didn't commit thesubstantive offence. All that will do is tip them off to any defence.
All you do at this stage is name the driver.
If they subsequently prosecute you and you wantto defend it then the time to do that is in court.
There is no point at this stage.
