Why shouldn't the registered keeper confirm who the driver was?
This is just generic curiosity, but I cannot quite understand this point.
Let's say we are in England, and the registered keeper of a car has received a parking charge notice. Most guides, FAQs etc recommend the registered keeper should NOT confirm who the driver was. But why?
The company already knows who the registered keeper is, and has in fact sent them the parking charge notice.
The registered keeper is liable, unless they can prove someone else was driving.
Can the company charge the driver more than the keeper? Is the appeal process different?
I have done some searches on here (yes, I have looked at the FAQ), Pepipoo, the new ftla.uk website, but this point remains unclear to me.
Was this piece of advice relevant with older rules but no longer now? Or what am I missing?
I found this thread from 7 years ago which gives some explanations: https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/discussion/comment/69906180#Comment_69906180 but I still don't quite understand how it would be relevant to the case I described.
