Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
Are you willing to risk being sued?
I can call now? But are you aware that it increases the cost?
Or I can carry on online.
Yes, no problem.
If you settle out of court the sum will be greater. Still happy?
Would it be possible to tell me whether you are prepared to risk it going to court? That would include paying in full if it does.?
It will change everything so I really need to know whether you can risk that.
Ok. Give me 10 mins to type up answer.
Ok. This really depends on how much risk you want to take.
Overall, it's not very cost-effective for them to sue and so it is worth contesting this if you are prepared to run the risk.
The identity of the driver is a non issue. If you didn't name the driver within 28 days of receiving the PCN then the registered keeper is the liable person.
Whether there is a positive defence or not really depends on your account and the nature of the PCN.
But you can always try to put them to proof upon the adequacy of signs etc.
Can I clarify anything for you?
No. no. Just ignore them.
This is just a debt collection letter. That is nothing to worry about per se. You will get several more of those.
Unless you get a court summons it is nothing to worry about.
You can't really presume that it has come to an end.
Usually they don't sue after the passing of a few years.
