Ask a Traffic Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Your answer makes no sense to me. Please explain what you mean.
Also do I have to write the drivers details on the police form? Or is it legal to give the drivers details under section 172 Road traffic Act 1988 via a letter to the police as long as the following information is given:Drivers name, drivers address, reference number and signature. Please advise asap if this is legal to do this.
I look forward to a speedy response (no pun intended) today.
What information? As previously outlined i do not understand what you are talking about below?
Please explain what you you are talking about...
As previously outlined I do not know what you mean regarding 'which detailed?' and 'what is a S172?' Please explain so I can move on regarding my question.
Your response appears automated.
Look forward to hearing from you shortly to resolve the above matter.
i am not sure we are talking about the same thing? I have not filled in a form! I was asking if I need to fill in the Name and address of Driver letter sent to me by the Police regarding a speeding allegation (38 miles in a 30 mile zone).
I sent the information on a separate sheet of paper rather than on the police form. My letter included my name and address as I was the driver at the time. However, a letter from the police has come back highlighting that it needs to be on the police name and address of driver form. I am asking is this a legal requirement that it has to be written on the police form sent to me or is it ok as long as I have supplied the information requested to the police on a sheet of paper (my name, address, reference number and signed my letter). Please advise asap.
Look forward to hearing from you shortly.
Yes, I did not... I looked up this form online! However, i have given the drivers name and address on a sheet of paper see previous message regarding this.
I used a a separate sheet as I was told by a person versed in traffic law that it was not a legal requirement to fill in the information on the police form as long as the name of the driver and the address was given.
The letter was loose as the s172 was not sent with the letter, but my reference number was on my letter.
so it is fine (legal) not to use the S172 as long the name and address of the driver is given within the 28 days time frame. Police are insisting that it needs to be on S172 although information has already been given to them in writing.
What does it mean to tell them without qualification who the driver was? please clarify at your earliest opportunity.
Look forward to hearing from you soon.
Just another point...Do I need to include in my letter my D.o.b and driving licence number or just my name and address purposes. I have also enclosed a copy of the police letter so there is no ambiguity with my letter which includes on it the drivers name and address (me) and the police's reference number regarding the matter. Please advise asap if this meets the legal requirements regarding 'Requirement and address of Driver' (in the UK).
Please advise asap.
