Man who can’t drive receives more than a hundred motoring fines

A man who cannot drive has complained he’s been sent more than a hundred motoring fines to his home, addressed to another motorist.

The BBC has spoken to Rob Richards, who has faced being chased by bailiffs over the penalties, despite the fact he’s never held a licence.

Parking charges, speeding fines and Dartford Crossing charges are among the demands sent to his home in Quinton, near Birmingham.

“It is annoying and it’s a nuisance,” Mr Richards, an NHS admin worker, told the broadcaster.

He said the volume of letters from organisations including Sandwell Council, car rental company Hertz and Thames Valley Police had become “meaningless” to him.

The government urges victims of car registration fraud to contact the DVLA.
