                No they haven't, I wondered if they would as its my first offence.

                However I think you have to be within 10% over the speed limit, so 66 or less in my case. I was caught at 73 so probably went too far over for it

                        Was the offence less than 2 weeks ago mate? As you mentioned it was a few weeks ago?

                          Prosecution threshold is 10%+2mph so 69+ speed awareness is then usually up to +2 mph.

                            well from the time which I was on that road and the ticket coming was a week so it was within the time limit of prosecution.

                            I had my hopes up after 3 days had passed that nothing was gonna arrive lol
