NIP Details and Circumstances
What is the name of the Constabulary? -
Date of the offence: - March 2018
Date of the NIP: - 4 days after the offence
Date you received the NIP: - 6 days after the offence
Location of offence (exact location as it appears on the NIP: important): - A34 N/BOUND, AT GREAT LITCHFIELD DOWN, NR WHITCHURCH, HAMPSHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM
Was the NIP addressed to you? - Yes
Was the NIP sent by first class post, second class or recorded delivery? - First
If your are not the Registered Keeper, what is your relationship to the vehicle? -
How many current points do you have? - 0
Provide a description of events (if you know what happened) telling us as much about the incident as possible - some things that may seem trivial to you may be important, so don't leave anything out. Please do not post personal details for obvious reasons - Speeding Motor Vehicle Exceed 70 mph on a dual carriageway - manned equipment. Recorded Speed 92. I was overtaking some lorries and had cars in front and behind me travelling at the same rate. Lorries had pulled out and backed up the fast lane and when they pulled back in everyone accelerated to overtake. I have no issues being caught, I am embarrassed that I was travelling at that speed but I just want to know if I am likely to go to court. I've been driving 19 years, no faults, claims, accidents or previous offences and I am really nervous about it.

NIP Wizard Responses
These were the responses used by the Wizard to arrive at its recommendation:
Have you received a NIP? - Yes
Are you the Registered Keeper of the vehicle concerned (is your name and address on the V5/V5C)? - No
Is the NIP addressed to you personally? - No

NIP Wizard Recommendation
Based on these responses the Wizard suggested that this course of action should be considered:
  • Do nothing!

    The police are not requesting the information from you, they are requesting it from the person the NIP is addressed to.
    Wait until you receive a NIP addressed to you personally, then come back here.

Generated by the PePiPoo NIP Wizard v3.3.2: Wed, 11 Apr 2018 08:30:37 +0000

Just to clarify, the notice was sent to car leasing company who have sent me a copy and informed me that the fine will make it's way to my home address. Just really nervous (as I should be granted) as I have never been through this before.

Assuming you were in a vehicle allowed to do 70mph then they would summon to court at 96mph. So as noted a 3 point fixed penalty which should be accepted!

Do not beat yourself up about it, over 800,000 drivers a year get speeding tickets. You do need to tell your insurers probably at renewal (but check your policy), but 3 points may not affect your premium at all. If they use it as an excuse for a big increase, look around for another company, which is good advice on each renewal anyway.

Sorry to ask yet another question but...

The lease company stated they responded to the NIP and sent the police force my details on the 5th April....I am yet to hear anything from the police however.

Is this normal or should I chase the force in question (I know chasing a speeding ticket - who would have thought)? Just worried in case they state they sent it to me and I haven't received it and then I get an additional telling off for not responding. I fully intend to hold my hands up and face the consequences, so no issues there.

Is it worth making contact or should I just sit here and wait it out?

Thanks again.

Yeah, ironically it's probably worth 'chasing'. 2 weeks isn't unusual though...

Thanks for the response.

I only have a copy of the front of the NIP received by the lease company, but it has the summary justice unit email address on the front. Should I just drop them an email asking if they have received the information from the lease company and let them know I am yet to receive anything at my home address, or should I send them a letter?

Thanks again folks.

Hi folks,

Just wanted to say I have today received the COF of 3 pts and £100 fine which I shall accept.

I also wanted to thank those of you who took the time to reply to me. Until this I have been squeaky clean - so it was completely new to me and the information and responses were a massive help.

Thanks very much

Adam

Don't forget to send off your licence, its surprising how many people forget and create a world of pain for themselves.

Will do, just want to grab a copy of it prior to sending it off, just in case I need to produce it for something else (hope not).

Thanks again for your time and advice.

Wont be doing this again in a hurry.
