Our company has received an NIP for travelling 52 in a 40 zone. As our van can be used on a day by a number of drivers we log who the people are travelling in the van at a time but not actually logging who is driving at any one time. Our vans do a lot of to and frowing during an event and we therefore are not able to ascertain which of our drivers was at the wheel during the offence.
After requesting photographic evidence to see if we can identify our driver we received a rear facing photo and thus no clearer as to who it is. We have questioned the possible drivers who cannot remember for certain and have checked credit card receipts but no luck there.

Thus far I believe we have demonstrated that we do not know and cannot determine with reasonable dilegence who the driver was at the time. I have also explained that new measure have now been put in place so that this does

We have explained this to the central ticket office who have said it will now go to court and it is up to the magistrates as to the fine imposed on the company for not providing driver details.

What is the next step? Will the company receive a fine and if so to what amount? Should we send a representative to the court to justify our efforts or rely on the correspondance we have had with the central ticket office thus far to explain that we have done everything asked? Will the case even be taken to court? and finally should we as a company question the evidence in the first place as it is very unlike our drivers to break the speed limits?

Any advice is most welcome.
