i was cuaght speeding in my works van in mid august, i was doing 99mph in a 60mph, i didnt really notice the speed i was doing. they recieived the NIP, saying it was me and sent it back to the police. then i recieved the NIP of the police, i replied saying it was me. i didnt want the hassle of futher letters to and froim the police querying the situation with whether the camera was calibrated or not etc. got to jaunary and thought hopefully nothing will come of this as i havent heard anything yet.

but alas ive received a letter from them which ill try and scan. but bare with me as im not use to scanning so might not show correctly!!

Unfortunately the bib and scammers enjoy lulling you into a false sense of security and often leave it until the very last minute before issuing a summons its their lttle sadistic game.

All you can do at the moment is wait, if the worst happens, then do the NIP wizard so people can see an accurate timeline and try to help.

you may want to remove that letter form here, take off anything personal. i.e name address, reference numbers etc and re-post.

To bow down is a sign of dignity and, funnily enough in the eyes of the law a, quite legal request to have the CPS park one up ya back drive.

Timescales for Prosecution.

The police have 6 calendar months from the date of the alleged offence to commence proceedings. This is achieved by the laying of an information (applying for a summons) at the Magistrates' Court.

The summons itself can be printed / issued a few weeks later and, as long as the information was laid within 6 months, can lawfully be served on (ie received by) the defendant outwith this 6 month window..

Your alleged offence occurred on xx August 2007. If it reached xx February 2008 without proceedings having been commenced, it would then be too late to do so. If you so wish, you can contact the court which deals with motoring matters in the area of the alleged offence and ask whether any informations have been laid in your name..

I wanted to post something along these lines - just didn't want to jinx anything wink.gif Glad you posted first.

Would it be worth waiting a week or so after the deadline just to be safe? 've noticed a few people on here contacting the court just after the cut off date only to find the info had "just been laid" in time!

I'd leave it until a few days after 'timeout' before calling the court. If no informations had been laid, I'd want to know the full name of the court official who dealt with the enquiry and I'd request that the content of the call was logged. I might even ask for faxed confirmation of the conversation details..

the offence occured on the 8th of August 2007 so if i wait til around the 11th-14th feb and then contact the courts, i think it will be either milton keynes or aylesbury for where i live. its the thames valley police and i live in aylesbury. if when ive contact either court on these dates dates and they have nothing, then can i presume i will not be attending court???

thanks

As Nemo said - that should be fine. If those are the local courts then it should be OK. Let us know how you get on - we're always up for a success story

Fingers crossed biggrin.gif

The court will be local to the scammers, not you, I think TVP use Banbury.

99 in a 60 is a ban, unless you come up with something very good!

The court will be local to the alleged speeding offence, if he is only charged with speeding.

Somewhere on the summons form itself should be the date the information was laid. That is the only important date.

AFAIK yes Tino. The information is initially laid with the court and must be within the 6 month time limit - it must be more than just name and address AIUI. Has to be enough to show what the subsequent summons will be for. After that's done they can take their sweet time with the summons!
