The stretch of road where this happened is a dual carriageway and the position of the van with the detector is well known to me therefore I know for a fact that I was not doing over 60 mph. Is there any point in contesting this and what would be the way to go about this. I suppose without proof from my side I would think impossible, but, I have had good advice from you on here before so I thought I would ask.
It is the Surrey Police Camera Partnership and the van was on the A24 Southbound carriageway at Beare Green.
I have not filled in the NIPS yet, and I telephoned and asked for evidence, they wrote back and said the photographic evidence is from the rear and calibration certificates can be seen on their website at www.surrey-safecam.org I looked on this and the the latest is dated July 2006.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Best Regards

The Rookie
Have you seen the photo's at all? Depending on what you said on the phone, writing and asking for photo's 'to help confirm the drivers ID' is the way forward, not asking for 'evidence' (which your not entitled to).

Websites are rarely kept upto date, they are designed to keep the ignorant masses happy....

Pete: - Did the Nip Wizard but all the answers were yes.
Simon - They didn't send the photos but confirmed it was of the rear of the vehicle and confirmed there is no driver identification

Please do not post personal details for obvious reasons - The stretch of road where this happened is a dual carriageway and the position of the van with the detector is well known to me therefore I know for a fact that I was not doing over 60 mph.

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.
