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.

Not being sarcastic but did you actually have a question in relation to this or simply wish to post a statement of fact that you received a NIP/Fixed penalty notice. If you have a question folks will want the offence you've allegedly committed and the circumstances of said offence to assist.

crap, apologies, i just filled in the nip wizard on suggestion of a friend and was quite ignorant to the fact that the questionnaire didn't gather all the info needed...

i think i'm resigned to my fate, but it was a mobile speed van about 200 yards from my house, it states i was doing 45mph in a 30mph zone.

apologies again for my ignorance in this! mellow.gif

The first step is often to request photographs of the incident to 'assist in identifying the driver', without suggesting you might not have been the driver or asking for evidence or anything else.
