Hello
And thanks for any help in advance
Here goes

I was told yesterday by my boss that I had been caught speeding in the works van ( employer is the registard keeper)

He showed me the nip

The offence date was 9/8/18
The letter ( nip) is dated 27/8/18
Outside the 14 day rule
Could I appeal even though I am not the registered keeper but the offence is mine?

    You don't "appeal", and it isn't a fine yet.

    If your boss nominates you as the driver, which he should, you will then get a s172 notice in your own name.

    You then send back the form, confirming that you were the driver at the material time, and a covering letter which says:

    Dear Speed Camera Partnership,

    Please find attached the completed form, confirming my identity as the driver of the vehicle on the date of the alleged offence.

    The offence is alleged to have occurred on [DATE]. The original Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) was sent to the registered keeper, and is dated [DATE], which is clearly outside the statutory 14-day period mandated by Section 1(1)(c) of the Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988.

    As such the NIP is invalid, and I do not therefore expect to hear further from you, save for your confirmation that no further action will be taken regarding this matter.

    Yours etc.

    I have been providing assistance, including Lay Representation at Court hearings (current score: won 51, lost 13), to defendants in parking cases for over 5 years. I have an LLB (Hons) degree, and have a Graduate Diploma in Civil Litigation from CILEx. However, any advice given on these forums by me is NOT formal legal advice, and I accept no liability for its accuracy.

    Double check that the employer is actually the Registered Keeper, not a leasing company etc.
    It is rare for the first NIP to be sent that late, the dates indicate that it may have been sent somewhere else first.
