Local Government Byelaws (Wales) Act 2012

Section 14 – Power to require name and address in connection with fixed penalty

53.Section 14 gives an authorised officer who proposes to issue a fixed penalty notice for breach of a byelaw the power to require the person to whom the notice is issued to give their name and address.  A person who fails without reasonable excuse to give their name and address, or gives a false name and address, will commit an offence and is liable on summary conviction to fine not exceeding level three on the standard scale (currently £1,000).  The offence of failing to co-operate undermines the ability of a legislating authority to enforce the law and this offence is reflected in the level of the fine.
