Many of my friends have periodic car trouble as do i. For those that have insurance that allow them to drive other vehicles so long as that vehicle is insured i am happy to let anyone borrow my vehicle if they are in need and regularly do anything to help a friend.
Whether its for MOT reasons, car breakdowns, or even that i can't be bothered to drive if we were going together to visit friends or the beach. I have had periodic back problems over the past year. There are many reasons.
I have just phoned round the friends in question trying to pinpoint in more details when they were driving the vehicle, if they can remember where they had driven and why and whether they remember getting flashed by a gatso. I am still no further forward
If it is my burden of proof to drag my friends into court and call them untrustworty over something trivial like a speeding ticket when it can only be one of them out of 6, and have them all bear their lives out in front of the court then i would just prefer to change my plea and plead guilty to the charge of exceeding the speed limit stating that i can have been the only person driving the car have followed my due diligence even though i don't remember being flashed and ask that i be allowed to go on a speed awareness course. Rather than risk loosing 5 innocent friends, which ever ones they may be.
With regards ***** ***** failure to provide the name of the driver and my extenuating circumstance, i.e. that i didn't receive notification and that my letters were sent to a non existent address. To satisfy the burden of proof would letters written and signed by:
1 My girlfriend stating that i was staying with her at her accommodation in kent and the dates i was there
2 a letter from customers and colleagues in Derby stating the dates when i was working there
3 A letter from my neighbour confirming that he had forwarded post to me on several occasions to my girlfriends address and not until we realised that the address was incorrect were we able to rectify the problem.
Is there likely to be a problem with my previous conviction of failure to provide the name of the driver?
Should i contact the prosecutor at all to see what evidence if any they are putting forward for the case?
When do i plead guilty to the charge of the speeding offence?
When can i ask for the option of going on the speeding awareness course?
my mum asks questions like this, sorry :)
