Hi, they usually stop you on the roadside, but they can choose not to in which case the RK should be served a NIP with 14 days of the alleged offence, where by he/she will have to identify the offending driver.

does both the Police Officer and the vehicle need to be visible or is it just the Officer??

Hi.
I believe they can both be hidden.

damn sad.gif oh well just a waiting game for me then! what happens if it arrives after 14 days??

There is no law which says that the the officer or car have to be visible, thus they tend to hide behind bushes and other shelters.

Do you remember if there was a marked car further up the road, they tend to be visible as they are not doing the speed check.

You may have a way round it, but at the moment we do not know whether "it" is going to happen. If it does, post again, completeing the NIP wizard, and we will see what we can do.
