Ok, so i dont want a big lecture, but ive come here for some advice as i cant seem to find any anywhere else :oops:
Basically, i was speeding UNINTENTIONALLY (i seriously thought it said 40 zone :-( ) and for the past 15 days have been worrying myself out of my mind.
Anyway, due to the royal mail strikes, ace timing for my situation :-( im worried my ticket hasnt arrived, and that its possibly lost in the post or something.
Is there somewhere i can ring to find out if i did get caught speeding?
Im seriously worried that if it is "lost" and i genuinly think i got nothing that day - ill carry on life, and then one day get a court summons saying i havent paid etc :? :shock: and that ill lose the chance just to pay the fine and take the points (which, even thought it was just a genuine mistake, im happy to take)
Im just worrying myself sick really, and i can say 100% this was an honest mistake - i just want to know the procedure, as im sure some tickets do genuinly get lost in the post.
Im at the point where im about to ring a solicitor for advice, as ive googled till my fingers hurt trying to find out what happens if you dont recieve a ticket, or its lost or something.
Id like to point out, in no way am i trying to avoid the ticket, im happy to take the points etc, its just im worried the royal mail strikes wont have helped, and its either delayed or lost.
To cut a long story short, my querys are:
1) Is there anywhere you can phone to find out if you are/should have recieved a ticket
2) If it has been lost in the post so i in effect of the eyes of the law "ignore" the £60 fine and 3 points what will happen (will they contact me again?)
