Can the DVLA take me to court if I never received the parking fine?

My sister has received a parking fine letter at her address even though I've not lived there for a number of years. She's sent it back unopened, can they take me to court if I never received the letter?

It depends on what address the car is registered to. If it's still registered to you at her address then you are not only liable for the penalty, you urgently need to inform the DVLA of the change of address of the registered keeper of the car.
