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 left the roundabout (from a 40 zone) and entered Grace Way, which is a dual carriageway, reducing to single carriageway. I overtook one car to ensure that I had room to get into the left lane, and then spotted the speed camera van and braked

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

NIP Wizard Recommendation
Based on these responses the Wizard suggested that this course of action should be considered:
  • The law requires you to provide the information requested in the Section 172 notice within the 28 day period, naming yourself as the driver. If you are considering obtaining formal legal advice, do so before returning the notice.

    You should note that there is nothing to be gained by responding any earlier than you have to at any stage of the process. You are likely to receive a Conditional Offer of a Fixed Penalty (COFP) and further reminder(s). If you want to continue the fight, you should ignore all correspondence from the police until you receive a summons. You need to understand from the outset that while you will receive much help and support from members on the forums, you will need to put time and effort into fighting your case and ultimately be prepared to stand up in court to defend yourself.

    We have an Article that describes what is likely to happen when you respond to the S172 notice in more detail.

There is just the single photo evidence, which was taken by a speed camera van, along with a scanned certificate of conformity, stating the device was last calibrated on the 28th March 2007.

The distance checks, however, are only checked at 25m, 50m and 100m.

As far as I was aware, these machines are only guaranteed accurate when calibrated up to 100m... is this correct?


Teletraffic say they can only guarantee the accuracy of the speed camera at the three measured distances of 25m,75m 100m.Check out a host of info.on "the whole 109yds".
The Rookie
This is of course totally untrue, its calibrated at those distances, for legal purposes its approved upto the 999m it cabn display to....
