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 was travelling to Weldon and noticed there was a mobile speed camera van on the other side of the road. It was parked after the traffic lights.

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.

Do you have a particular question? What was your speed and limit?
Gan
What speed were you doing and what was the limit ?

I was in the village hall at nearby Stanion a few nights ago and saw a police notice that Weldon Rd was one of their two highest local priorities

Hi. I was caught twice. Once driving to Weldon, and once going back 10 minutes later, having forgot about the van. On the way to Weldon, the speed limit was 40mph and I was caught doing 46mph. I was wondering is there anything that I can do or should I just accept it? I don't remember if I was actually going over the limit.

"Epic fail"....at that speed your likely to be offered an awareness course, I suggest you take it, sounds like you need it!

If they've clocked you at 46mph then you probably were - was it the same speed both times? I'm afraid they would be considered separate offences.

Assuming the first speed was in CoFP territory, the OP doesn't say.....unless it's in the other thread. Of course if he plays canny he may be offered 2 courses as at the time of APPLYING he won't have COMPLETED any in the previous 3 years!

Even if both speeds were within the SAC threshold, only the first admission input would generate a SAC offer (as long as no SAC attended for an offence within prior 3 years). The second admission input wouldn't generate another SAC offer because there would be a 'booking pending'.
