Responsibility of owner of public service vehicles
107.
—(1)  The owner of a public service vehicle shall, unless he satisfies the court that he took every reasonable precaution to avoid the commission thereof, be responsible for all offences committed under this Act in connection with the use of the vehicle and may, in the discretion of the Registrar, be prosecuted for such offence either in addition to or instead of the driver or conductor, as the case may be.
(2)  When the driver or conductor of any public service vehicle is reasonably believed to be guilty of an offence under this Act, the owner of the vehicle and any other person who was or should have been in charge of the vehicle at or about the relevant time shall give to the Registrar or to any police officer such information as the Registrar or such police officer may require of him concerning the identity and address of the person believed to be guilty of the offence.
(3)  If any person fails to do so within 7 days of the date on which the information was required of him under subsection (2), unless he shows to the satisfaction of the court that he did not know and could not with reasonable diligence have ascertained the information required, he shall be guilty of an offence and shall be liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding $100.
(4)  Notwithstanding anything in any other written law, any information given under subsection (2) by any person charged with any offence under this Act may be used as evidence at the hearing of the charge.
