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.
Why weren't you given the fixed penalty? Do you know?
Thanks for the information
This would normally carry 6points and a fine in the low hundreds plus costs of £85
They do not usually summonsif they can offer the fixed penalty although that may depend on the view of thelocal constabularies. They are quitedisparate.
There is an outside chanceof a ban but not a high one.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Hopefully, Ihave answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. Ifanything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. Inthe meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
Isn't this is a single justice notice procedure anyway?
If you are summonsed to attend then you will need a really good reason for not attending. This is a summons not an invitation.
Probably because they are considering a disqualification.
That doesnt mean you would be disqualified but you might.
If you don't attend, with no better reason than the general Covid objection, there will be consequences for that I'm afraid.
You could be prosecuted for contempt but most likely they would just deal with the case in absence and make you pay costs of trial
