Whilst reading through “Letters from Readers” September issue I was most amused at reading the letter entitled “The Motorists’ Lot”.
I recently received a summons for parking within the limits of an “X” Way crossing; this also was a tatty “nth” carbon copy, to quote your correspondent, which was both hard to read and understand. After reading through the various parts, notes and paragraphs, etc., I also came to the section where my sex and date of birth were required. This part was marked with an asterisk, which called my attention to a short note at the bottom of the form.
To quote the exact wording :
*A person giving a notification in writing that he pleads guilty to an offence involving endorsement of driving licences or disqualification is required by Section 22(2) of the Vehicle and Driving Licences Act, 1969, to furnish information about his date of birth and sex. Failure to supply this information is punishable on summary conviction with a fine not exceeding fifty pounds.
