They supplies a photo as proof, which did indeed show a car with my registration number. A trivial check would have shown that my vehicle was a motorcycle, so plainly not the thing they'd snapped. Nevertheless, despite pointing that out to them several times, I only got it resolved by going to a local court to state under oath that it was not me driving that car, honest your honour.

Someone got fined for doing the same thing, just because the amazingly ingenious and extremely well written, AI software, found their number plate, on a ladies tee-shirt, who happened to walk across the bus lane.

Apart from the mistake, the sentence at the bottom of the notification doesn't make sense to me, "YOU MUST NOT IGNORE THIS NOTICE, OR PASS IT TO THE DRIVER" forbids you from doing either of those things, when the latter is obviously what you must do if you aren't the driver!

The equivalent in Western Australia says something like:-"If you were not driving, pass it on to the driver."

I noticed that mistake as well, and agree with you. It is apparently poorly written.

The driver is lucky she wasn't running, or he would have got a speeding ticket as well (joke).

Nusa:
Are you sure it's a mistake? Sounds to me like the registered owner of the offending vehicle is legally responsible for paying the fine, not whoever was driving. Just like a parking ticket...making the crime against the vehicle gets rid of all those nasty issues of identifying who is actually driving.
