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.

was it a mobile site or gatso?

96 is right on the cusp of a CoFP (3 points £60) or going to court. With any luck you'll get the 3 pts £60 fine.

Request photos from them to help identify the driver- dnt say evidence cz theyre ba***ds n mite not send them if u say that.
That way the smarter people on here can check for bad pings/ dodgy stuff

It's a GATSO and to be honest, it's not exactly hidden. It's on the straight section down the hill before the bend approaching the Countess Roundabout, so it's possible that vehicle was in the process of slowing down, which is why after the flash was seen the speed was noticed to be lower. I suspect that 96 will go straight to a summons unless you are very very lucky.

Yep if theu send the photo's you will probably see your brake lights on. The speed is measured a short time before the first flasg so you could have easily lost 11 mph. Pete D
