They are asking me to identify the driver and mail the form back to them. It says on the letter that it is not a summons and there is no fine associated with this notice. What happens if I fill it out and send it back? Do I need to respond since I was not the driver? I logged in to watch the video of the violation so obviously they will know I received the letter.
You need to look at the statute in your state. I can tell you that in Washington you do not have to identify the person you think was driving your vehicle. I have done several of these tickets and they all resulted in dismissals. My procedure, which may apply in your state, is to prepare a sworn declaration for my client to sign, under oath, that says something to the effect that "On ____ date I had loaned my car and was not driving. " I then send it, along with a motion, to dismiss the ticket. As an aside, I indicate something to the effect that if the court denies my motion I will certainly appear for the contested hearing. I have never been to a contested hearing for this type of ticket.
