Aiding, Causing Or Inciting Road Offences In addition to the offences list ed above, above, you c an also be c harge harged d if you are suspected to have been in some way responsible for another individual committ ing one of the above above crimes. The penalty penalty c odes for these offences offences are very similar, with only the final digit of the code changed to reflect the nature of the offence.

Aiding, Abetting, Counse lling Or Procuring An Offe nce The penalty code for this sort of offence will see the 0 at the end of the code replaced with a 2. For i nstance, if you aided someone else i n the aggravated aggravated taking of a vehicle, the code for your penalty would be UT52, rather than UT50.

Causing Or Permitting An Offence Causing or permitting an offence changes the final digit of the relevant penalty code t o a 4 - for example, if you had somehow caused another driver  driver  to drive dangerously, the penalty code would be DD44, in lieu of DD40.


Inciting An Offence The code for for inciti ng an offence offence is the same as the original offence, offence, exc ept with a 6 added to the end. The code for exceeding the speed limit on a motorway is SP50, so the code for inciting another driver to do so would be SP56.
