Speed offence 5 months ago
« on: November 16, 2023, 10:10:33 am »
Hi All,

Got 2 NIP of Exceed temporary 50mph speed restriction - Roadworks -ACD
3rd June 65mph on 50mph A46, notice issue date 09 Nov
4th June 58mph on 50mpg M40 , notice issue date 13 Nov

It is not my routine commute road.
I moved to new address on February and updated the driving license on March. I do not aware to update v5 log unit did research yesterday.
I had RM re-direct service from Feb ~ end of Oct.

Unfortunately, I got speed ticket on Aug and offered speed awareness course in this month.

My concern is, the two speed offence in June will fall into 6 months limit to prosecute rule? Thank you.

Are you trying to tell us something, or just making conversation?
Were you driving at the material time? Yes/No/Not sure.

If these are "fresh" NIPs giving you 28 days to provide the driver's details beginning with the date of service of the notice, you will be able to provide the information after the 6 months for the speeding offences has expired. Post the s. 172 responses at a post office and ask for proof of posting (free).

N.B. If you fail to provide the required information, that is a separate offence which would get you 6 points a go, and would time out 6 months after the 28 days to provide the information expires.
I am responsible for the accuracy of the information I post, not your ability to comprehend it.

Yes, it is fresh NIP not a "Reminder".
When I post the s. 172 after the 6 months of the speed offence date.  Will I receive further letter for the fixed penalty?

Who knows and who cares?

A "fixed penalty" would be a Conditional Offer of Fixed Penalty - which is an offer pay a fixed penalty (100) and have 3 points endorsed on your licence rather than be prosecuted for the speeding offence. And you would no longer be able to be prosecuted for the speeding offence anyway as the 6 months would have expired.

Which again is nice conversation but doesn't answer the questions asked

  Will I receive further letter for the fixed penalty?
You seem not to appreciate that both a 'Fixed Penalty Notice' and (what you'll get if they do) a 'Conditional Offer of a Fixed Penalty' are both an OFFER to you to dispose of the allegation and you are free to say 'no thanks' to it.
There are motorists who have been scammed and those who are yet to be scammed!
