About Me


  1. This one is mysterious: friend of mine has a vehicle service and MOT garage business and has received a letter through the post from the Police entitled INTENTION TO PROSECUTE. The NIP (if that’s what it is) states the offence as driving a mechanically propelled vehicle without due care and attention on the public road and it lists a vehicle that was brought into the garage but they did not work on. It is addressed to the garage business and not to an individual; it says to identify the driver or any other information In short the car was brought in and there’s a
  2. Just got a NIP in the post recently, 39 in a 30 zone. What's the likelihood of of avoiding 3 pts and being offered the speed awareness course? I'm clean, no points ever, in 30 years driving history. It was from Thames Valley Police in case that has a bearing. Lastly, I'm not sure if it was me or the missus at that time? We share a car and i'm 70% it was me but can't be 100% sure. Under the circumstances, I'm going to supply my details and take the punishment. Anything wrong with this approach? thanks
  3. I have received a NIP for for going 39 in a 30 zone, but im 99% sure i was only going around 34 or 35... Is it possible to challenge the Camera? IE. Its not functioning properly?
  4. Hello, i would greatly appreciate any advice and help with how to deal with my NIP I received yesterday. I will try to give you as much information as possible but as im new to this and its my first NIP i may overlook something so please forgive me. I was travlling at 83MPH on the A417 towards Swindon (just before it turns into the A419) I will state now i do admit to doing this and fully accept the responsibility but i hope i may have some luck on my side and may be able to get this overturned the letter states Offence Speeding - exceed 5/18/20/30/40/50/60mph
  5. I received an NIP in late August early September for doing 36 mph in a 30 mph zone in July,got flashed by van. I admit that it was my fault and completed the document accordingly giving all of the required information and posted the form back to the relevant authority awaiting to hear what my punishment would be:|. I heard nothing until receiving a letter from the authority yesterday with my name incorrectly stated, requesting that I complete another NIP due to the fact that the original NIP was addressed to my company name as I operate from home as a sameday courier and my vehicle i
  6. Hi, My first letter after 15 years of driving (request for a driver details). Alleged offences - 1. driving propelled vehicle without due care (which i fully admit) and 2. failing to stop / leaving accident place without providing details - which i dont accept. Accident - in the morning rush hour tried to squeeze my bike in-between cars and went to outside lane to go around stopped car and had a slight collision with cyclist. Nothin major - cyclist had a few light bruises. I stopped, helped cyclist, called ambulance to check his bruises, provided him with my name, surname a
  7. Hi there, Hope somebody can help? About a month ago/6 weeks? I was shocked to open a letter of intended prosecution, in relation to an alleged 'speeding offence' where I was caught on camera, doing 38 in a 30 zone. I was also surprised, that the paperwork, indicated that this had been the third notification, that had been sent to me and they wanted me to identify myself as the driver and plea by post - giving a time scale of 14 days or so, to respond. Failing to do so would result on the matter proceeding in Court anyway etc I gathered my thoughts and set about completing the
  8. Well, I'm usually asleep by this time but totally stressed with a situation because of my incompetent husband. I received a NIP for a speeding offence in Oct 15, I am the registered keeper. As I wasn't the driver of the vehicle, I signed the form and dated it and gave it to my husband to fill in the details. At the time we were separated, so I left it at his and told him to deal with it. It's August now and god only knows the truth whats happened but one of his mates was called into court to fill in a statutory declaration because he wasn't driving the vehicle at the time. I've come to kn
  9. I have just received a letter requiring me to confirm name and address, intending to take proceedings, details are as follows . On Saturday 7/5/2016 I was returning from a friends business on an Industrial Estate at 12.02, I know the estate very well having WORKED for KODAK ltd for years on the same road. It states that I was travelling at 39 MPH on a 30MPH road on an INDUSTRIAL ESTATE on a SATURDAY morning with very little traffic on it (more about that later). I would like to point out I have been driving for years without any speeding offences, the car I was in is
  10. Hello everyone, this is my first post and i need your advice please, thank you! the letter sent to my address was a form that titled with "duty to give information as to identity of driver". the form/letter was NOT signed, i.e. no signature from police officer who actually dealt with the case. is it still valid then? the letter was received just two days after the accident, which was a fault accident and no third parties involved, no person injured. also, online answers gave me the name of such form should be called "notice of intended prosecution", so the for
  11. Hi, hopefully this is the right place to put this! today I received a letter from the BTP with a NIP asking for name and address of driver. It states 'This offence can be supported by photographic evidence from an offence detection device. The driver of vehicle *my vehicle* is alleged to have committed an offence contrary to one or more of the following offences under the Road Traffic Act, 1968. Failure to comply with a red traffic light signal at Nutbourne Level Crossing' I was driving with my boyfriend in the car also, as we were approaching the level crossing
  12. I work as a van driver, doing home deliveries. A couple of weeks ago I delivered to one of two attached cottages along a narrow, unlit, unmade road. After completing the delivery I had to turn the van around, as my only alternative was to reverse around 100 yds back to the main road (I should point out that it was dark at the time). I completed the turn outside the cottages, as that was the only point wide enough, and drove to the end of the road, where I stopped for a few moments to work out my next route. I was then approached by the owner of the second cottage who informed me th
  13. Hi there, Looking for advice on how to handle & respond to the following: Received NIP today 10th March 2016, the NIP was dated 9th March 2016 with the alleged offence occurring on 13th December 2015. Offence was 41 in a 30 zone. The wife was driving at the time. The wife has been the registered owner/keeper for about 4 yrs. The vehicle and plate have been registered at the current address for over 12 months. I've seen comments and advice about NIPs needing to be served within 14 days of the offence, which this is clearly outside, but what I wanted to kno
  14. Hopefully this is the correct forum, didn't know if it should go here or in the train section. I just got the following email from my work regarding the company car I drive: Background info about crossing: You drive down a small lane to the level crossing, which has white wooden farm style gates across that you have to open the one side, walk across the tracks, open the other side gates, walk back, get in car, drive through both sets of wooden gates, get out, walk over tracks, close far side gate, walk back over tracks, close near side gate, get back in car and drive off.
  15. Hi guys. A friend just asked me to pop a question you guys here. He has recieved a NiP for exceeding the speed limit at around 10.30pm on 26/09/2015 Now he freely admits he was driving and will take whatever punishment it results in. What he wants to know is how far over the limit he was as the NiP is a bit weird. It states that he was speeding but here's the weird part. It says he was caught exceeding speed limit, but underneath just says 35 mph. It doesnt say thats how fast he was going, or if thats how much over the limit he was. It simply says along the lines of : Th
  16. Just received an NIP 40 mph in 30 zone. Address on the NIP is totally incorrect, but timing is correct. Offence site as detailed on the NIP is approximately 2 miles from the site where the mobile camera was used and the photo evidence taken. It is mistake on the offence location. Can anyone suggest best way to answer the NIP ?
  17. Just a quick question here If a car park is PRIVATELY owned and has barriers so that it may be closed to the public at any time. Does the RTA cover this car park? The story late august 2014 The partner of my daughter allegedly had a "bump" in the car park and did not know about it. The driver received the NOK asking for details of the driver under Section 172 Road traffic Act 1988 as amended by Section 21 RTA 1991 from the Police. This was duly filled in and returned by normal post. I think someone took the index of his car and passed it on to someone else. The
  18. Hi I have been caught speeding by a van hidden in bushes on a road close to where i work The speeding took place on a wide clear road with good visibility - It has no signs saying 30 & I always thought it was a 40 limit - Anyway that aside - the road was clear so i gave the car a Blast ! -- and the van obviously got me. The question is does the 14 day rule apply ? - I have read somewhere in past that the NIP must arrive within 14 days of the alleged offence . Hopefully this is correct and i get a second chance , at this speed 65 in 30 i will end up with a short ban a
  19. Missus got speed camera nip through with a section that allows yo to tick speed awareness course (if suitable) fixed penalty or court. My concern is it doesn't state the penalty or points you will get, is that legal? It also has warning that if you fail to reply to the s172 notice the penalty WILL be higher than the speeding fine, I thought both were max £1000 and 6 points?
  20. Hello, I've received the following NIP: Issue Date 12/8/2014 Date of Offence 22/7/2014 Time : 20:14 Location : M5 Jnc 16-17 Southbound S. Glos Offence : Exceed a variable speed limit 40mph - automatic camera device. The recorded Speed was 52mph I have no recollection of the offence but question the variable speed limit being 40mph on the M5 at 8:15 on a Tuesday night, there is nowhere on the NIP where you can view the evidence like some police forces do. This is a company car so explains the delay in me receiving the notice. I'm anxious to avoid this one as th
  21. Hi - I received a NIP a couple of days ago. The offence took place on 30 June and the NIP was dated 16 July and postage stamp is 16 July (I have the envelope). I was the person driving the car when a speed camera must of clocked me doint 59 in a 50. My wife is the registered owner and the NIP is addressed to her. I know there is a 14 days rule which this clearly breaches, but can someone assist me in advising me what I should do? Do I ring them and tell them? or what? Thanks for your help? Bobby
  22. I have just received a NIP (Notice of Intended Prosecution) for doing 84mph on the M4 between J35 & J34 Now here is what actually happened; On Friday 4th July which was a bright sunny day I was traveling east along the M4 and as anybody who knows the area, at that particular stretch it starts to climb uphill, so to keep a steady 70ish (not 80ishor 90ish) I put my foot down to compensate for the hill. As I crested the hill my speed increased and I eased off the accelerator and took my sunglasses off. It was then that I noticed on the A4222 Cowbridge Road parked on
  23. Ended up with a Notice of Intended Prosecution for doing 65 MPH on the M1. The NIP says the variable speed limit was 50 MPH. Seems a bit unfair given the normal speed limited of 70 MPH on the motorway, but life is unfair. I am 1 MPH over so I am not eligible for the speed awareness course. NIP Details and Circumstances What is the name of the Constabulary? - Date of the offence: - December 2013 Date of the NIP: - 11 days after the offence Date you received the NIP: - 12 days after the offence Location of offence (exact location as it appears on the NIP: important
  24. Hi My OH got a NIP the other day but it does not state what speed he was allegedly going. It states he was speeding on motorway where speed limit was reduced to 50mph due to roadworks but it was at 1.30am and the roadworks were in complete darkness. How can he admit speeding when they have not told him how fast he was going. Any advice please?
  25. In May, I took my family to Derbyshire for the day. During the day my wife and I both took turns driving. At some point we allegedly, drove 58mph in a 50mph zone passed a mobile speed camera. I have received a NIP and sent it back requesting photographs of the vehicle in order to identify who was driving at the time. I received the photographs which are of the rear of the car, and do not dhow the driver. I have written to the derbyshire police, and explained that I can not absolutely confirm who was driving the vehicle at the time of the alleged offence. (as we took turns dri
