Sean Harkin of our Criminal Law team represented a client who was wrongly accused of Failing to give information of the driver’s identity as required by s.172 of the Road Traffic Act 1988. This offence carries with it a mandatory endorsement of 6 penalty points (in addition to a financial penalty) which can have serious repercussions to anyone who requires their driving license for employment or personal reasons. Following articulate legal submissions from Sean, the Magistrates found our client Not Guilty and ordered that he receive the benefit of a Defence Costs Order to assist in reimbursing him for his legal costs.
