28 days. Then they have 90 days to apply it. So if its been 118 days since it happened then forget about it, looks like you have been lucky and the police man changed his mind.

My OH got his within a few weeks (maybe you have been luck this time )

oh I think I may have struck lucky lol this happened on jan 2nd just off to find my calender and count them days!

Anyway normally if you get pulled over you will receive the ticket at the time? Only if its a speed camera or police speed checkpoint will you get it through the post.

What county were you in?

hampshire and they had set up a roadside sting where they jumped out from the front of a parked van with their gun!
of the 3 of us that stood on the kerb being told off one of the guys was arguing the tiss that the coppers were not wearing high viz jackets etc,i just wanted to get on my way as i had to be somewhere,none of us receieved anything at the roadside and were all told it would be in the post

looks like u have been lucky as it should have arrived by now. lololol thank royal mail!

mine arrived after 5 days..... I just ignored it, moved house (I was moving anyway) and didnt register my car there until I had to get tax (11 months later) so luckily I've got away with it (5 times I been caught, not once been done) - twice not been able to gauge my speed, twice been done by cameras (one incorrectly) within 2 weeks of the one mentioned above, and moved house. one other very nice policeman let me off on the A14. should he read this then thanks :D

Check out

http://www.pepipoo.com/When_stopped.htm

it's part of a site dedicated to keeping to the letter of the law.

Just as you are expected to conform to the minute detail of legislation, so are the authorities. They write the rules, so if they can't stick to them then their case may well fail.

I believe they have 28 days to serve a notice on you, but that may be just for automatic speed camera notices through te post.

Use the pepipoo site as a guide and go over the minute detail.

Good luck

isnt the 28 days to inform the registered owner and not the keeper? i got done years ago by a van camera thing and it took months for it to come through cause it had to go to london to owner of car then back to them once they informed who i was etc etc

it is usually sent recorded delivery. Even if one got lost then they would have sent reminders or court notices. Don't worry you've got away with it. Trust me... I know:thumbsup:

Going a few mph over the speed limit on a road is nothing compared to some of the things I see on the road everyday, its the indecisive, overly cautious middle/fast lane hogs that worry me.

The chances are that at the end of the shift they only sent out tickets to a small number who were excessively speeding. Otherwise they may have had to send out hundereds.

The normal get out with this is that they must put a speed camera sign in view before the speed checkpoint or van to warn you.

If its on a road with static camera signs then this wont work, but most checks are done on roads without static signs so a sign has to be placed on the road side before you get to it.

Most police forces fail to do this.

If you do get caught by one of these ask if there is a sign. If he says yes go for a little walk and see, then if he is telling fibs you have got him.
If he says no then you can state that there must be a sign. If he still insists on giving you a ticket ask him to write 'No warning sign' on the ticket in the info box.(you have a legal right to request this, so dont feel bad) This is then your get out from the fine and points.

debate may also include, women, old people, chavs, white vans, cyclists and traffic wardens :lol:

I saw an old guy clinging onto his steering wheel for dear life as he proceeded to go around the roundabout the wrong way:w00t:

just this very morning, some old dear just pulled out on me while I was going round a roundabout to get onto the motorway - she didnt see the funny side when I was going down the slip road hanging out of the window offering my glasses.

Oh yes the classic "Do you know my dad" line. Used it a few times. He also went to training school with the then chief constable Steve Green which was always useful. Also used to get into football and cricket games for free.

and accidents arent caused by people speeding on the motorway :whistling:
#34
I was reply to your comment about adults being run over by people speeding, personally I don't see too many pedestrians walking down the hard shoulder of the M6.

And you'll see a lot more accidents when people are going slower speeds in dense traffic because they are too close to the car in front, than people who are doing 85 on a open stretch of motorway.

As you were stopped @ the roadside you will have been given a verbal Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP)

If you had not been stopped @ the roadside they would have had 14 days in which ti serve the NIP.

For want of a better saying the 'Statute of Limitations' runs out after six months ie you have to be served with a summons.
Strictly speaking there is no time limit on the serving of papers, it is merely a Home Office Guideline.

ps if you live in Hampshire you should know that you will get away with Robbing a Bank as long as you don't exceed the speed limit escaping the scene ;)

Normally, if you have been stopped at the roadside, a Fixed penalty notice, which includes points (usaually 3) and a fine (usualy £60) is issued at the roadside, unless you were doing 25mph over the speed limit, or had 9 points on your licence already, in which case you would be reported for summons ie. going for a day out at your local magistrates court.
If you were told you would be reported to court or for summons (same thing) then the police will have 6 months to arrange for your date in court. This will be the paperwork you were told to expect through the post. A notice of intended prosecution (NIP) is not required to be served on you as you were advised at the time you were stopped of the offence. The paperwork is generally sent through the post recorded delivery and the only requirement in law for it to be served is that it is sent to your last known address. Just ignoring these, as suggested earlier, will not make it go away as it can be heard in your absence in court

hhhmmmm this is confusing now,i was caught doing 51mph in a 40mph limit,currently have no points on my licence
