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 did not notice the Camera or realise I was speeding

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)? - No
Is the NIP addressed to you personally? - Yes
Although you are not the Registered Keeper, were you 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.

A very long shot but.........Was it a NSL & a Truvelo camera. These are set on NSL to differentiate between cars, vans & trucks which have different limits, 60, 50 & 40. If it saw your van as a truck & no one checked the picture then it COULD have been sent as a lorry doing 50 when the limit for you (assuming your van was sub 3.5 tonnes) was 50.

The reason I suggest this is a few weeks ago I reckon I was flashed by a Truvelo on the A46 in Warwickshire, I was doing dead on 50 (limit for my van) but it obviously thought I was bigger ohmy.gif

Never heard anything as I assumed someone saw the picture & realised I was within the limit.
