This is nothing but a Prelude to a civil lawsuit. Next you'll be served with a civil suit for bodily injury and pain/suffering lawsuit.

I'm sure the girls parents hired a lawyer and the lawyer pressed the issue for the ticket. That way the lawyer has something to go to civil court against.

If the officer really thought you were at Fault at the accident scene, I'm sure they would issue a citation immediately.

Some of your suggestions are very "American"

Am not a legal person but I think it works differently in the UK.

Alan, you presumably have legal support with your insurance. Union apart (always helpful, however I do not entirely trust them), revert to your insurer. I had similar case 4-5 years ago (hitting the cyclist) and lawyers proven the cyclist hit me. As well I had a proposal to plead guilty (it is a part of procedure), I did not and I won. Keep your head up, you're not guilty until proven otherwise. Best of luck.

Alan, with the greatest of respect you鈥檝e joined a union, why aren鈥檛 you speaking to them?

This clearly isn鈥檛 the platform to get conclusive answers.

As an aide how鈥檚 the HMRC investigation coming along?

Find a good lawyer that specializes in traffic law.
Then after you win counter sue you will make thousands they did you a favor.
You have the smoking gun in your camera

Which is exactly why you should not be talking about it here.
Your comments may end up 'on record'.
Rules and laws are different everywhere, even in different states within the United States.

See a lawyer.
