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 - 7.15 on a dry sunny sunday morning. Came off the motorway at J25 and turned west on to the A358. As i approached the traffic lights, they changed to green so I continued west and saw a camera van on the opposite side of the road as I accelerated. I braked to about 40 as I didn't see a speed sign, possibly because I was looking at the van! Just had NIP for 53 in a 30.
Just want to know if anybody else been caught here and what happened.

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.

Several threads in the last few months. Using the "Search" facility might be a good starting point.

The Rookie
Seems a new hotspot, they have obviously found a place they can catch lots of people to try and justify their funding (and therefor their own jobs).

Hi mrworried. Did you fight the ticket or have to accept it and take the fine/points.
