NIP Details and Circumstances
What is the name of the Constabulary? - Cambridgeshire
Date of the offence: - 25/03/2007
Date of the NIP: - 25/3/2007
Date you received the NIP: - 5 days after the offence
Location of offence (exact location as it appears on the NIP: important): - A14 Stow Cum Quay
Was the NIP addressed to you? - Yes
Was the NIP sent by first class post, second class or recorded delivery? - First
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 - I don't remember anything, being the in the fast lane and feeling pressured more than likely i havn't been driving long so im still very nervous.
I have a NIP for exceeding the speed restriction of 70mph at a speed of 86mph.

Never saw any warning signs so was a complete shock when i recieved the NIP in the post

NIP Wizard Responses
These were the responses used by the Wizard to arrive at its recommendation:
Have you received a NIP? - Yes
Which country did the alleged offence take place in? - England
Did the first NIP arrive within 14 days? - Yes
Are you the Registered Keeper of the vehicle concerned (is your name and address on the V5/V5C)? - Yes
Were you driving? - Yes

NIP Wizard Recommendation
Based on these responses the Wizard suggested that this course of action should be considered:

Complete the PACE witness statement.


Ok well i am so worried about this, i can only get 6 points and so far this is good going! Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Sounds like the familiar reply after having an accident "I didn't see the other vehicle"

What on earth with so little experience were you doing driving that fast? Slow down for your own safety and for others.

You maybe better off in not filling in the pace ws, not complying with their request only attracts 3 points a fine ???? and costs????
The choice will obviously be yours.

86 in a 70 wouldn't get you 6 points , so would still leave you one conviction away from loosing your licence, so I disagree and would suggest using the PACE ws, if you decide later to plead guilty (the results from ECtHR and the HC should be known by the time you got any summons) I would think you would only get 3 points and £60 fine.

Thats a bit harsh isn't it? I don't speed on purpose, i stick to the limit. In this case obviously not. All i am saying is that i am still new to the road i have alot to learn, i don't know what gives you the right to make comments like that! I'm only after a bit of help as i don't think i was doing the speed they said i was.

fair enough ill amend my comments

if you are proven beyond reasonable doubt in a fairr hearing to have been driving
at 86 mph then i hope they ban you

after that you will have to take a new test

if you really think that watching your speedo is dangerous and that
you feel pressured to drive at 86 and are nervous when driving but still happy to speed then
some more lessons and a re-test will be a good thing for you and other road users

When that happens, I tend to ease off gently. It's their fault if they hit you...

I think that what Rozie is saying is that being fixated on her speedometer for the next 2 years instead of concentrating on the road ahead would make her/him a dangerous driver. I think I understand what she means by that.

It probably sounds a little mean,but if your so confidently a good driver then taking your test again will be a breeze!
