Hi,NIP was sent back end of Feb - long story short, a letter was sent asking for photos to help identify the driver as the car is shared by a number of family members - they has sent a letter back saying whilst the comments in the letter are noted, police believe there is enough evidence to prove the alleged offence - pics were also sent but they are unable to help identify the driver. They also resent the NIP. What to do now? - Just send a list of the possible drivers? Then what would happen?Your advice would be greatly appreciated.Regards.
Good day, I always strive to reply in the shortest possible time,I may be delayed answering other questions, attending a meeting or in court.Are you sure you cannot identify the driver?
well the date of the alleged offence was during the period we moved house so it was a very busy and stressful period - one of 3 people could have been driving - none can remember - plus its been such a long time now.
What was the date of the offence exactly and when did you receive the NIP?
It was 26th Feb - The NIP was recieved within the 14 days - I think on the 13th day.
HiMy colleague has asked me to look at this as it is more my area of law.I am just travelling to Court and cannot see your reply. I will get back to you as soon as I arrive which should be around 10.30. Thank you for your patience. Jomo
Also the name on the NIP is not fully correct as the registered keeper - I know there is a slip rule - however this mistake has been made again after I have sent them a letter which also asked them to send any further correspondence to the new address. They sent the reply to the new address but spelt the name wrong again.
How badly wrong was the name misspelling?Is there any doubt it's for the registered keeper?
Well the keeper is Altaf Hussain Hanid-Awan or Altaf Hussain Hanid (this is my father so I'll need to check the documents to confirm - but the NIP is address to Altaf Hussain Hanis - this is probably a very small issue however if we provide the names of 3 possible drivers what is likely to be the next step?

But as mentioned a lot was going on at that time with a house move on that same weekend -and it cannot be confirmed who it was - so what should be done then?
NIP was sent to the old address and the mail was not collected until over a month later - so its not a case of less than three weeks ago.
The car is freely shared between members of the family - and no diary or record is kept of who had the car when.
