FAQ #1 What do I do if I receive a Notice of Intended Prosecution?

Posted on 17th April

If you’ve received a Notice of Intended Prosecution, chances are your heart initially sank but was quickly followed by the thought of “what do I do now?!”

Well… “Don’t ignore it!”, however tempting that may be.

A Notice of Intended Prosecution almost always comes with a notice requiring you to give information about the identify of the driver at the time of an alleged offence.

If you fail to respond to the request for information, that itself is a criminal offence! In fact, failure to provide the information often attracts an even harsher penalty than the initial road traffic offence.

By way of comparison – an offence for speeding could often be argued down to 3 points, whereas the offence of failure to provide information attracts between 6 and 8 penalty points.
