  • 35mph help please

    Hi guys n girls really need your help

    Could you please give your opinions on this scenario:

    Basically you get caught speeding without knowing. A few days later you get a letter stating you have been caught doing 35 in a 30 zone. (the sheet received was pink) all the sheet says is please provide name address etc etc etc. But no where on this sheet does it state any fixed penalty points...

    Prior to this I got a speeding fine I was doing 42 in a 30 zone I know I was young then. But I received a fixed penalty notice with 3 points and 60 fine. Where as this other notice doesn't have the points etc printed on.

    My question is would you get points etc for receiving this letter or not?

    Cheers and help is much appreciated people

    Last time did you get stopped first though so they knew who wa driving?

    They need you as the keeper to identify the driver before they can prosecute them?

        It will be a NIP, notice of intended prosecution, which you need to fill in and return, they will then decide if you shoulkd be offered a Driver Improvement Scheme, fixed penalty or court.

            What's the most likely scenario then moeman say I return the letter as it was only 5mph over?

            And no I wasn't stopped first time it was the sane thing with a mobile camera

                  Depends on your local scheme, generally for first 2mph over HO guidelines, ie 35, or 36 then DIS would be offered but would depend upon your current licence state and if you had prev done a course.

                    For the record it is not me that has been caught speeding. But the person in question has already got 3 points.. But not done any course etc

                        They have 14 days to issue a NIP to the driver once they have been identified, so if Ryan is the reg keeper he gets the first NIP, he has to reply, if he fails to then he can be prosecuted, your mate is in a minority and may find that his licence has been revoked if he has been ignoring letters.
                        If Ryan was not the reg keeper then the process would trundle along until he was named as the driver then he would get an NIP.

                          he has passed his hgv test 3 weeks ago so his licence is fine mate could it still be in the process ???
