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.
What can I do for you?
Sorry for the delay and thanks for the information.
Obviously he may get away with it entirely.
But the chances are fairly high that the police will just send a conditional fixed penalty offer or a court summons out in the name of the person they have been given.
Whether or not that leads to his dad contesting this matter is something that only he will know really.
Unless his Dad does that though they may never identify that he has done this unless a police officer can recognise him and he would have to know him quite well to do that.
Sorry if that is bad news.
Can I clarify anything for you?
No, I don't think they will do that.
I think they will just send out the summons to his Dad.
They might very well have him on the BWF but they have to identify him in person.
If he wants to avoid this, he can always go to a station and declare himself.
No. I don't think that.
I think they will just send out the enforcement to his dad.
this will come to light if his dad raises the alarm.
What will happen is that they will send the summons to his Dad.
I would advise him to go and hand himself in and admit it. They will prosecute him for no insurance, speeding and maybe obstructing a police officer but that is a lot better than perverting the course of justice which is what could happen worst case scenario if he is found out without a confession.
Worst case scenario tends not to be the outcome but he might want to know the risk.
No, I can't be 100% sure obviously but it wouldn't be normal practice.
I would expect them to just send a summons in his dad's name with the date of birth given.
They will just correct the date of birth at court.
No guarantees obviously. But that is what I would expect.
