Ah back at work and back having hundreds of emails and correspondence to chase up on! I must admit I don’t mind the paperwork
(Shzzz don’t tell anyone I said that.)
its quite a feeling to complete a pile of it and know its done and gone
One of such items in the pile were some returned HO/RT 2 forms
a HO/RT 1 notice is what you may know as a producer. It is a simple one page form that officer fill in on the road side as a request to produce paperwork in regard to your drivers licence, tax insurance etc and other items in regard to been driving on a road
It is a legal document and you would normally get one following an accident or when a non-endorsable offence has been committed. If your vehicle has a defect, and as a way of checking that a driver holds correct and valid documents. There are parts of the FPN system that also act as HO/RT 1 notices but they will be explained to you on the roadside.
So once been issued with a HO/RT 1 you have seven days to produce your driver’s license in person (both parts) at your elected police station. Failing to do so can lead to prosecution. (Other documents are explained on the rear of the form)
The HORT/2 is completed by the officer at the station where you produce your documents, this form is then forwarded to the officer who issued the original HO/RT 1
After a recent accident where a MALE had been knocked of his motorcycle after traveling down a bus lane and had broken his leg was one such recipient of a HO/RT 1 from myself.
He duly attended his local police station and produced his out of date
Of course, this meant I ended up summoning him for a number of those offences
I like it went people think they can pull a fast one and think we don’t check or read stuff carefully - Note to myself to check Immigration status on return tomorrow!
I look forward to seeing him in court!
