Drivers trying to evade responsibilities for their safety camera offences could be found guilty of Perverting the Course of Justice. This is a very serious offence which can result in life imprisonment.
When receiving a Notice of Intended Prosecution this requires the addressee to complete the form themselves providing the correct details of the driver at the time of the offence. Failure to do so will result in a prosecution. You CANNOT and MUST NOT pass the letter on for someone else to complete for you.
