S172 Cases – Failing to Provide Driver Details
Many motorists will have received a notice of intended prosecution within their lives, often alleging offences such as speeding. Failing to properly respond to this notice may result in a more significant penalty. The registered owner of a vehicle should expect to hear of an allegation with 14 days so that they are better able to remember and provide details of a driver.
Motorists charged with this offence often have perfectly good reasons why they have not provided the information or may actually know nothing about the actual request. It is advisable to seek advice from a specialist a the earliest opportunity to ensure the appropriate information is given in all circumstances or you are properly defended if charged.
Road Sign Violations
Failure to comply with a road traffic sign can, on conviction, result in a fine of up to £1000. Where the sign in question is a ‘Stop’ or ‘No Entry’ sign, then it is possible that penalty points could also be imposed and it can escalate into a prosecution for a more serious offence such as careless or dangerous driving. Road sign offences include not complying with signs, road markings, railway level crossings and traffic lights. The legislation surrounding this type of offence can be complex, which is why it’s important to contact a solicitor who can examine the legality of the signs and your behaviour.
Although you might see the violation as minor it could have severe consequences for drivers facing disqualification under the ‘totting-up’ process. So if you are in this position, please contact us as soon as possible for help.
