My name has been put forward for speeding in a work van - how do I contest this?

I've received a letter of intended prosecution for speeding from my ex-employers. It was a firm with four vans and various drivers, but on the day and time of the speeding I cannot remember if I was driving the actual vehicle. I did drive one certain van 90 per cent of the time, but the one in question is the one I hardly drove. However, my ex-employer has put my name to the police saying it was myself. If that's the case and it was me, that's fine. But how can I go about contesting this?

Your ex-employer may have stitched you up. But if your job was driving a van you must have kept records of where you drove and when (a legal requirement). You can use those records to ascertain exactly where you were in what van on the day and at the time in question. if your ex-employer has lied to the police he could be charged with perverting the course of justice.
