I would like some advice about my daughter, who in January of this year was caught on the Metro Newcastle without a ticket. When spoken to by the inspector she stupidly gave a false name, then admitted that she had, Now at the time my daughter was 17 years old therefore a minor when this happened. She was given no paperwork off this inspector at the time of being caught, no penalty notice so that we could pay the fine straight away. As her parent I have not received anything from them notifying me that my daughter had been caught. My daughter turned 18 in April of this year, bearing in mind that we have received nothing in paperwork from the Metro such as the fine itself, reminders or anything, we automatically assumed that they were not going to do anything. My daughter has just received today 1 sept 2012 a letter which is a court summons for what happened back in January. Why were we not given a penalty notice to pay the fine at the beginning, why was I as her parent not informed of what happened as she was 17 at the time, why have I had no letters, reminders or anything from them before this and why has it took from January to September for this letter to arrive, surely she should have received a receipt off this inspector on the day it occured, but she was given nothing. Can anyone help!
