No, that was meant for another post.

Ok.

Does it refer to careless driving or S36 RTA?

Which?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Sorry. it's S36 RTA.

Thanks.

If this is S36 RTA 1988 then it should only attract 3 points and a fine.

you may well get the conditional fixed penalty or the red light awareness course.

Unless you have 9 points on your licence this will not affect you.

Can I clarify anything for you?
