• As far as I'm aware they have to send the NIP to have a chance of prosecuting the registered keeper further down the line. It's not very polite, it's basically - you are going to court, unless we discover something that changes our minds.

    Not at all it's just the way they deal with traffic offences differently to others. If they are looking at charging them for assault or attempted murder the self imposed traffic rules go out the window and they can boot the door in at 3am or do whatever. If they set the bar low and only aimed to go for "leaving the scene" which will get the driver 6 points and a small fine ignoring the cyclists injuries completely then that's another thing and they might actually be worse off in court not identifying a driver.

    Given what we know about the way road violence is dealt with in this country it seems like the chances of them leading with this approach are slim. They would also need a positive ID on the driver at the time - which it seems they do not have, hence this appeal for information.

    Until they are certain as to who was driving at the time all doors will remain on their hinges, I’d wager, but let’s see.
