Is there a time limit for when the authorities have to give you the speeding ticket by? The date of the offence was 21/5 but the later is dated 18/6.

No.
They have 14 days to serve a NIP on the RK, unless one of the statutory exceptions applies.
I am responsible for the accuracy of the information I post, not your ability to comprehend it.

Even just yesterday i saw someone get flashed, they must have been doing 24 on that road based on my speed. It's right by tower hill station i think it makes them a lot of money.
24 is the guideline speed for the start of enforcement. The cameras don't make money people speed does.

Peopleís speed does? Of course speeding is an offence and dangerous driving should not be tolerated. You see so much of it nowadays.

But your comment implies that authorities are justified to give out speeding tickets such as 25mph on a 20. This is certainly not dangerous driving in many peopleís eyes. This is exploiting the public!

Based on your comment, if the authorities were to set the speed limit of a road to 15mph where itís actually safe to do 30, then technically yes they are speeding, but is it actually dangerous driving and should they really be fined for it? Of course not.

Itís the law. If you object to that, campaign to get it changed. This is not the place to tilt at windmills.

Well no, the point being the signs or markings there were not clear due to the heavy rain.
To which the logical suggestion is if you couldn't see the signs due to the rain you were probably driving too fast for the conditions.  It's really not an argument that will go in your favour.
There are motorists who have been scammed and those who are yet to be scammed!
