Doctrine Against Self Incrimination


Exceeding a recently lowered speed limit

Is one legally bound to provide the name of a driver when served a Notice of Intended Prosecution for, say, exceeding the speed limit and photographed by a Gatso? This sounds like one has to incriminate oneself.

Dominic says:

Yes you are. I’m afraid the argument that this contravenes the doctrines against self incrimination is a dead duck. The police are allowed to ask you to name the driver and you have to provide a name if you know who was driving at the time.

Tell me what’s actually happened and I maybe able to help further.
