Here's a little story for you.
10 years or so ago an off duty policeman is having a pint in a pub in London. He overhears a group of three men on a nearby table talking about driving up to Glasgow on the weekend. It seems all of the men are driving and they're talking about their route, what time they need to be there and how long it'll take them.
The off duty policeman quickly works out that, if they take the time to drive from London to Glasgow they claim then they'll have to do well over 70 mph for the entire journey.
He pops to the phone box and calls in some on duty officers who quickly arrest the three men for................. Conspiracy to break the speed limit!
Faithfully reported to me by an experienced Solicitor.
Oh, and those three men? Well, they ended up with criminal convictions for conspiracy. No prison time, but that looks a hell of a lot worse on your record than 3 points!
So I think yes, Harry should pay Rons £60 fine. But Ron should keep his mouth shut and not try explaining that he had agreed with Harry to break the speed limit because he was late!

This very problem happened to me.
My brother in law was taking us home from the airport. We weren't in a hurry, there was no rush, it was his driving alone that got him a ticket.
When the ticket came through my sister told me
"Remember when we gave you a lift? Well we got a £60 fine......"
I didn't offer to pay as it was my brother in law's fault.
We had also paid £20 for petrol which more than covered the petrol used (about £5 used).
Maybe he will slow down......
