I have just read a post over on psooc, whereby someone has got points, but the offence was over 5 weeks ago.

Hope this clarifies the situation for you guys and girls:

Helpful information:

There is a satutory requirement to serve the notice within 14 calender days of the offence, after which it is deemed to be invalid. So it would appear that you can ignore any demand for money or for the submission of your license in order for it to be endorsed, provideing you respond with a letter stating why you feel the notice is invalid.

Given the high number of speeding notices issused, it is not uncommon for a notice to be sent out to late and because most motorists dont know the legal situation, the majority of late notices are successful, resulting in fines being paid, licences endorsed whenm they need not be.

part of the reason for the 14 day limit is that situations where a car hasmore than one driver it is unreasonable to expect the registered keeper, the reciepent of the notice to know who was driving the vehicle at the time of the offence after more than 2 weeks.

So if you write in stating you dont know who was driving due to the 14 day period being over due, so you cant account for who was driving.

But if you dont believe me get this months Evo mag or test drive for december in the porblems page, it explains it properly their.

Hope this helps and saves you a few points.

Not all police are bad, just remember that next time you slag them off ;) ;) ;)

There are exceptions to the 14 day rule. ;)
The above refers to Notices of Intended Prosecution, not summonses.
NIP's do not need to be given when the offender has the offence pointed out to him/ her at the roadside.

Well if its at the roadside, then their is no time delay, so for the argument i put forward, then yes you have a valid point the argument is only for NIP's which I should of stated.

60 +10% = 66 +3 =69MPH
But you're right about the speedo, would be over 70 on that
