    Check our News story from April 2017 on the Tough new penalties for speeding

    Back to the original thread:


    I know someone who is worried that he might have been caught speeding through a new style fixed camera on the M40 at the weekend. If the camera was active, how long does it normally take for a ticket to come through?

    Thanks!

    YOU COULD SAY THAT BUT THEN YOU WOULD BE GUILTY OF PERVERTING THE COURSE OF JUSTICE, WHICH IS A LITTLE MORE SERIOUS THAT A MERE SPEEDING FINE, BEARING IN MIND THAT SOME CAMERAS CAN ACTUALLY ID THE DRIVER

    About 20,000 to 1 that they will screw up and lose your paperwork. Sending the NIP straight back is daft, you have 28 days to return it and should use all of that time - especially if you're going to request photos to help ID the driver, which they probably won't send now.
    Speeding cases fought: 24 (3 of mine, 21 for others). Cases won: 20. Points on licence: 0. Private Parking Court Cases: Won 30. Lost 9.

    As long as they posted it in time and Royal Mail haven't stuffed up; you are not quite in the clear yet and they have correct address. But you can probably start breathing a little easier. But give it a day or so to make sure.

    However be aware that the penalty for not identifying the driver is higher than the penalty for speeding in most cases.

    I'm really worried
    I am really worried that I may have seen a camera flash me. I was driving in my car when my daughter called me I turnt sideways and at the corner of my eye I saw a white flash and I really don't know if it flashed me or the driver next to me. I had just passed a set of traffic lights n moved over to the left hand lane and I was before the line when I saw what looked like a flash (never seen one flash before so i'm confused) I was doing no more than 35 mph in that zone did it flash me? I'm always sticking to the speed limits, and has nearly been killed by reckless drivers on the roads. I'm really worried please help!!

    Thanks

    As previously mentioned in this thread, you need to wait a couple of weeks and see if the registered keeper gets any notification of your speeding.

    No point worrying!
  • madspof
    Arghh !
    My dad was flashed the other day driving my car in a 50 doing a 60, anyway we had only had the car for a week and it was still registered in the previous owners name, this being the 4th jan anyway I today have recieved a NIP from almost 3 months ago is this still valid ?

    Absolutley still valid. You can still ask for photos, and take 28 days to respond naming your father. Then your father will get a letter and he can take 28 days to respond.

    There is a 6 month time limit on prosecutions, you need to take advantage of this.

    However it might be the case that they may be allowed an exception in your case because they only had enough evidence to prosecute when you return your NIP naming your dad, so the 6 months may start from that date.

    What I used to do is ignore the 1st NIP and 28 days and wait for them to send me a reminder letter with a further 14 days to respond this always worked for me with further delays by me further down the line. However it may not work for you, it is a gamble on their efficiency and willingness to prosecute rather than hope for an easy sucker to pay the fine.

    If you try the delay tactics you are essentially gambling that it will get timed out rather than go to court. But you have to walk the walk not just talk the talk, which means you have to be prepared to go to court and face the music. I never had to. <<<< note the past tense, I haven't had an NIP in 7 years things may have changed now.

    I presume i got caught on one of those mobile police vans on Sat on a dual carriageway.

    I think i was going too fast my speed had crept up without me realising DOH!.

    A bit of a squeeky bum 2 weeks coming up i guess.

    What annoys me is, ok sure i WAS going a bit to fast but...

    The area the van was on was a good safe road, no junctions cutting across or pull outs etc.

    5 mile either side of the van there were some really sticky parts of the road with cars having to cut across the carriageway etc.

    These are the places which imo the cameras would be put if it was truly about making roads safer... (but of course I always slow down in these places as rightly or wrongly I tend to read the road rather than the road signs if you catch my drift so they would not make as much money).

    I saw the van as well, but i had not realised quite how fast i was going.

    Interestingly, this discussion is one of the most popular forum threads from Google this year.

    Wonder why?
