There are two issues, speeding and S172 (failure to supply).
1) S172: If you reply to the remnder, they won't prosecute you.

2) Speeding: if the RK does not receive the NIP within 14 days of the offence, that is a defence to the speeding charge. In this case the recipient has to prove to the court's satisfaction that they didn't receive the notice. This will involve giving sworn evidence plus any other corroborative evidence that you have.
