False Motoring Offences Amnesty Letters Cause Havoc In Manchester
Police have recently had to issue a statement denting offering an amnesty to motorists who have been accused of dodging speeding fines. A law firm said to be representing more than 400 drivers in the region where the letters have been received has suggested that people are cautious.
Being overtaken by bad drivers is another dangerous offence. People who overtake and then run out of space to fit back into their side of the road can create problems and accidents involving those around them.

The charity Brake have also recommended that the minimum age for people to be allowed to accompany learner drivers should be raised to 25 rather than 21 as it is currently.
The offence of perverting the course of justice is extremely serious and a caution for that offence can have ever implications, drivers should not admit guilt if they believe that they are innocent. The Greater Manchester Police force have not offered amnesty from prosecution and therefore anybody who receives one of these letters is requested to take it to their local police station.
