    He can't have received an FPN, it must have been a PCN. Bit different, for a start it's not related to a criminal offence. Try digging, or getting your friend to dig, a bit deeper on pepipoo.

    Brake failure?

    If I were you, I'd be very cautious about going down this "my brakes just failed" route; for a start it is practically impossible for the braking system on a modern car to fail completely, and even...
