Notice of Intended Prosecution Questionnaire
Please click the links below to obtain advice if you have recieved a notice of intended prosection.
Were you the driver at the time of the alleged offence detailed on the notice?
Do you know who the driver was?
Advice If you are not certain who the driver was you are still required to provide all the information in your power to give in relation to the identity of the driver. You should complete the form at the most appropriate section and provide, in a covering letter, all the names and addresses of the people who could potentially have been driving. If you are sure you were not driving at the time of the alleged offence you should state that in your letter.
If you fail to identify the driver you may be prosecuted for failure to provide information contrary to s172 Road Traffic Act 1988. In order to successfully defend a prosecution for this offence you may need to satisfy a Court that you did everything reasonably within your power to identify the driver.
Please note you should not, under any circumstances, give information to the police which you know to be false. Doing so could lead to a prosecution for attempting to pervert the course of justice and a potential custodial sentence.
