Hi,
So long story short I was caught speeding on the motorway about 3 weeks ago. I have a clean licence and received a conditional fixed penalty of 3 points and £100 fine about 5 says ago. Havent got round to paying it but still plenty of time. I assumed that that was the end of it once I payed and got the points endorsed.
Have now just received an SJNP and am confused as to why. Is this a mistake or do I have to pay the conditional offer and deal separately with this SJNP that I have never even heard of.
Cheers

What was alleged speed and limit?

Are you sure they're for the same event?

Have you called them and asked why this has happened?

Yes definitely for same offence. The alleged speed was 89. It just makes no sense for them to give me a conditional offeee and then also send one of these.

Sounds like an administrative error. They cannot commence proceedings whilst in the suspended enforcement period.

RK=Registered Keeper, OP=Original Poster (You!), CoFP=Conditional Offer of Fixed Penalty, NtK=Notice to Keeper, NtD=Notice to Driver
PoFA=Protection of Freedoms Act, SAC=Safety Awareness Course, NIP=Notice of Intended Prosecution, ADR=Alternative Dispute Resolution
PPC=Private Parking Company, LBCCC=Letter Before County Court Claim, PII=Personally Identifiable Information

Private Parking - remember, they just want your money and will say almost anything to get it.

What's the date of the COFP? If the offer of a fixed penalty has definitely not expired and you're sure the SJPN relates to the same incident, this would suggest there's been an administrative mix up. Might be worth giving them a call.

In theory they can rescind a fixed penalty if further evidences comes to light since it was issued which shows it wasn't the appropriate disposal for the offence, but from what you describe this seems very unlikely.

I am not on the "motorists's side", nor am I on the "police/CPS/council's" side, I am simply in favour of the rule of law.

So hopefully a phone call will sort it out and I can pay the £100 fine and take the 3 points in your opinion?

From what you've told us so far, yes.
