hi

got caught speeding at 104 mph on a 70mph dual c/w today.

a bike came up behind me while i was in my car.

apparently he videoed me and radioed ahead to another marked bike who pulled me over.

a neither saw the bike rider again or saw the video.

policeman was very nice, took all my details,he said i may or may not get a summons.if i do not hear within 6 months the matter will be closed.i signed nothing,he didnt give me any paperwork ie producer!!!

what will happen now?

You wait - assuming England or Wales, they have 6 months to "lay the information before the court" - which would result in getting a summons shortly afterwards.

Generally it would be unusual for them to just "drop it", unless they do it accidentally due to an administrative cock-up.

OP, sorry to hear of these tactics being exploited yet again, I am fairly well versed in this new entrapment policy.
Which county were you in?
fastcar
in sussex!

THEGMAN
Surprise surprise. The Sussex Sting again!

Youve had the verbal N.I.P at the roadside, now a waiting game, Sussex seem to be quite fast nowdays with the Processing of the Summons.

Theoretically you may get it within 4 weeks, but, they have been known to take 6 months to serve the paperwork.

If youd like to PM me we could discuss your situation further, or keep us posted if anything else comes up!

I don't think you can call that entrapment can you, there is no incitement to speed!

it certainly felt as though i was being "goaded" shall we say.

ill see what happens now.just really annoyed.

Why. no one asked you, or tempted you to go faster, there was no goading, you did it of your own free will. No goading, no entrapment. Pete D

as i said just really annoyed now.

just waiting is a pain in the butt.

while waiting ill get as much info from here and see what happens.

my advice is dont speed in sussex especially on the main coastal roads.

beware motor bikes travelling close behind you.!!!!!!!!
