Can I request the evidence before accepting a Fixed Penalty Notice?

The Fixed Penalty is designed to “streamline” the process, with the result that many Police forces simply refuse to supply evidence stating that this will only be produced if the conditional offer is rejected and a Court hearing requested. Although there is no legal obligation to disclose evidence prior to a Summons being commenced, most Police forces will allow access to information upon request and others do disclose it by way of a website or post etc. In our experience, if you don’t ask, you don’t get. If you want to see the evidence, be persistent and you will probably obtain same.
