No, that was the first thing I asked her but unfortunately she was too shaken for that
yes - plus the fact that the police officer detained her in the police car for no reason and without giving her any documentation.
I gave the above so the facts are all there
but isn't this similar to speed tickets - if I get a speed ticket I can ask for proof of me speeding, this is the same thing, shouldn't there be some form of proof? otherwise any police officer can claim just about anything against me and win with no proof
But for speed tickets it doesn't go to court - I normally ask for proof online - is there no course similar to that?
what's the next course of action? she wasn't given any documentation to accept anything - I certainly agree that she shouldn't sign anything without fully understanding what's in the document.
if we wait 14 days may pass and then she'll be liable for a fine or should we call the police station?
Thank you - so to summarise, all we will expect is a FPN ( I think it's £60) and that's the end of it if we pay or if we refuse a court summons?
How long do we have to wait after which the matter is considered dropped?
a final question what's the difference between 6 months to summon and 28 days to offer an FPN ? Sorry but I didn't get that bit..
Thank you - is it possible to summon without offering the FPN?
meaningif we don't receive the FPN does that mean the end of it?
final question here - so all we have to do is wait for 14 days?
and if we do not receive the FPN within that time - we can consider the matter for all intents and purposes closed?
OK - to cut my losses if I want to pay the £60 and get it over with - should I wait for the 14 days or contact the police station or will they send me some paperwork?
Another piece of information my wife gave me which doesn't sound right so am not sure whether it is legal for the policeoffice to do so or not - she said to me that the Police Office while in her car asked my wife to get out and get into the back seat of the civilian police car - my wife didn't get out of the car of her own accord...is that legal?

Thank you - I rated the reply - is that all I need to do ?
