No, I had lent my car to friends who took my car to Bournemouth and one of them were driving. I was on holiday at the time in Wales
Yes, I added my friend to my insurance for one month, and his wife was covered to drive my car under her own policy.
I made the statutory declaration which was accepted and sets aside the judgement of my falling to provide details. How can I now be summonsed again for this?
This makes no sense. I went to court to make a statutory declaration to defend the fact that I had never recieved any letters, NIP, S172 form, or anything at all related to the offence. I explained in court that the reason for this is because of building work at my house causing post to be lost or misdelivered. The court accepted this and allowed my declaration which SETS ASIDE the previous conviction of failing to provide details. I understand that this doesnt make the speeding incident go away but it does remove the conviction for failing to provide details as the court has accepted that I never had the opportunity to do so. The whole process should now start again right from the begining, where they send me a letter stating that the vehicle was photographed speeding and asking me to provide details of the driver at the time. They cant summons me for failing to provide details when a court has accepted that I havent had the opportunity to do so, and they cant summons me for speeding until they give me the opportunity to tell them if in fact it was me driving.
I dont understand what you mean when you write "You are summons for failing to identify and speeding in the alternative". The summons appears to be for both not for one or the other. I also dont understand what "There is a run on that basis" means.
As I wrote in my last post above, I cant see how your advice makes sense. And it was poorly written some bits I dont understand what you mean.
