Hi
I was caught speeding 60 in a 50 last year by an lt 20 20.
I filled in the nip, was summonsed, and at the ptr i requested
the video.
I sent two more letters requesting disclosure of the full video
and on the third appearance at court, i was given 2 stills from it
plus a 2 minute video to take home with me.
Unfortunately it turned out to be BLANK.
The cps then sent me a second copy again 2 minutes long.
My trial is coming up soon so any advice would be much appreciated.

The officer doesnt mention anything about prior opinion on his statement.
And the 3 times i have seen him he has been accompanied by another police officer.
Also the video shows error 3 on 13 of the frames, then my alleged speed
on the next 4 frames, then timeout on the next 26 frames.
This is by using logs 20 and 21.
The car infront also caught on log 20, car behind in log 21.
Is all this right?
Seems im getting nowhere forward with this.
Does anyone think i should just get it over with at the trial?
I would appreciate any advice.

Cheers.

Bobby,

In order to properly prepare your defence, you will need the complete traffic video in your case.

The solicitors letters in this case may help you to prepare the argument. icon_idea.gif

If you are not confident fighting this yourself, one of these solicitors may be able to assist you further.

Thanks for your reply Mika.
your advice and pointing me in the right direction.
I`m hopeful with this, and will give it a go.
My trial is next week, i'll let you know how i get on.

Many thanks

Hi
just to let you know the trial was adjourned, and the new date was Tuesday gone.
I still didnt have the full video, which i had repeatedly asked for, but the cps said i had definetly received it through the post, i definetly had NOT.
The result was a £60 fine, 3 points, and £200 costs.
They get their money no matter what.  

Good luck to everyone else. keep fighting.

Best wishes
Bobby.
