Do you mean failing to stop and report?
Ok. Are you asking what sentence you will face?
What was the accident?
OK. There is no way around that then.
They might drop the dangerous parking as that only carries a fine. If you plead to failing to stop and report that might be acceptable.
Failing to stop and report carries either 5-10 points or a ban. There are some other sentencing options but that will not be likely here. It would likely just be a fine.
I would expect 6- 10 points. You are not going to be banned if the facts are as you say.
There will also be a fine, costs of £85 and the surcharge.
Can I clarify anything for you?
It is generally better to be represented. It does rack up costs but, on the whole, you are better off represented than not.
if you have 6 points in the last 3 years then you are at risk of a ban for totting.
You would be better off represented if you intend to try to argue exceptional hardship but that will be expensive as you have the burden of proof.
For exceptional hardship?
A barrister under public access would probably do it for roughly £500 but you would have to gather the evidence.
A solicitor would charge much more but they would evidence gather.
All the best.
