johnnytheboy - you are a naughty little boy!! Just found your fingerprints on some of the replies......NIIICE

Anyway, can someone answer me this question (although I probably know the response) - Why do comments have to go to a moderator before being displayed on that site??

........ Because most of the comments will suggest that the person reporting the incident:

a) Gets out of the overtaking lane
b) Watches where they're going rather than learning registration numbers
c) Gets a life and stop slandering other motorists with heresay

I could be wrong of course.....

And all references that could ID the car or driver are removed. Unless it's a company van it seems.

Can the lawyers in this forum tell us, if it is against the law to name a motor vehicle and not the driver?

Which is what the report bad driving blogs/forums is doing, naming a vehicle and not a person.

Is it against what law? In what context?

Your question doesn't make sense without more detail.

If your question is wrt to responding to a S172 request then yes, you have to name the driver. If it's just wrt the Better Driving Please website you can name every driver and/or every vehicle in the UK if you like, as that site has nothing to do with the law so there's nothing to be 'against' in that context.

If you identify something which could identify someone then that would be potential grounds for either a slander or a libel action.

I am not a lawyer, though I did study some law at college in a time that was far, far away.

If a car driver breaks the law and you get one digit of the plate wrong and thus make an accidental false report. Or someone could make up a deliberate false report to get back at someone.

These site are, IMO, (and remember I am not a lawyer!) potentially dangerous.
