Areas of Law / Crime

I have received a notice from the police requiring me to give information as to the driver of my car on a certain date, which probably arises from a speed camera photo. What are my obligations to provide that information?

Where the driver of a vehicle is alleged to be guilty of a speeding offence (among others) the registered keeper of the vehicle must give such information as to the identity of the driver as may be required by the police. In these circumstances you can be prosecuted for failing to give the required information, regardless of whether you were the driver at the time. However where an individual is involved, as opposed to a company, there is a possible defence that the information cannot be provided despite “reasonable diligence” by that individual.
