Have been asked to look at this for you.
I don’t read anything sinister into this.
If you have not already filed a defence, then you should have filed one and your defence would be that you were not the driver of the vehicle, the driver of the vehicle was Bruce Devlin of ADDRESS and that is the correct defendant.
There is no claim against you just because you are the registered keeper if you have given the name of the defendant. These charges work on the basis that by parking you enter into a contract to pay the fee or pay if you stay over.
The laws are more Draconian in England than in Scotland but the easy way for you to get rid of this is to simply say that somebody else was the driver, here are his details, get on with it.
That is what’s likely to happen at the informal hearing which the judge has ordered.
You need to make sure that Bruce has a copy of all the correspondence and that he is invited to attend the hearing. Basically make sure that everybody is aware of everything.
It would seem that the only reason the parking company is pursuing you is because you haven’t told them that you were not driving.
