I was caught by a hand-held laser on 12 October 2006 and intend to contest. However, I didn't receive a summons until 19 April 2007. I know that the 6 month time limit applies to laying information before the court, which appears to have been done on 29 March. But isn't a 3-week delay in posting the summons a factor which might lead to it being invalid? Please let me know if you've had any experience of anything similar.

From what you have posted, the summons is perfectly in order so don't waste your time trying to build a defence on that basis.

You'd get more advice if you complete the NIP wizard and scan, wash and post your summons bundle.
