Why Have They Asked Me To Name The Driver?

Question:

Am I responsible to supply the name and address of a driver on a vehicle that I do not own and has nothing what so ever to do with me?

Dominic Says:

Anyone can be asked to name the driver at the time of the alleged offence if the police feel that the person asked may have information to that effect.

A doctor was asked to give the name of someone that drove into his surgery car park in one case and this was held to be a legitimate request.

Do you know who was driving? Have you just been asked to name the driver or have you been summonsed for failing to do so? You only have to give any information that is within your power to give but if you know who was driving you should name them.

What’s the alleged offence? Do you know why they have asked you?
