Good Morning

I am sorry to hear about this but you are liable for the breach.

If you have a good record you can write to the bureau explaining the situation and request that they withdraw it and give you a warning.

They have the discretion to do this.

Also ask for the photo to show where the sun was and that your vision was obstructed.

If they refuse then you can take it to court and have them reduce the fine but you will still lose the points.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
