Q205: I have received a Notice of Intended Prosecution, but I wasn't driving, what should I do?

If it was a safety camera that detected your vehicle, on the reverse of the Notice of Intended Prosecution there are three parts you may complete, if you were not the driver you should complete part two naming who was the driver. Or if you were not the owner or the keeper of the vehicle at the time of the offence you should complete part three.

Under Section 172 Road Traffic Act 1988 it is the responsibility of the registered keeper to know who is driving the vehicle at all times. Failure to do so in itself is an offence punishable by a fine of up to £1000 plus 6 penalty points.
