I have been asked to look at this for you to provide anotheropinion.
I think the new should write to the Chief Constable as suggestedby my colleague, but you do need a statement outlining the circumstances andyou do need a letter from the insurance company which says quite specificallythat the car registered number (the one that you are in) is insured and wasinsured and that the reason it would not show on their database was that bigcosts there had been a change of cherished number.
Ask the chief Constable to reopen the case with a view togetting the fixed penalty revoked and the points removed from the licence.
You need to explain that you simply could not get proof ofinsurance until now and at the time, you could not find your insurancecertificate and therefore you had no option but to accept the fixed penalty.
The Chief Constable has this in his power to do but as mycolleague said, he may or may not do it on TV does not, you are faced withmaking an application to court for judicial review of the decision not toreopen your case. Be aware that a successful judicial review does not changethe decision, simply makes the decision making process be revisited. The enddecision may be the same.
Please do not forget to give my colleagues answer a positiverating and not mine because all I did was give a second opinion.
