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 this takes me to 9 points and perilously close to a catastrophic ban. Any ideas for a defence?

 

Many thanks,

Your defence is week if you can not remember driving there

Unfortunately the speed limit is the maximum speed in ideal conditions

 

Speed does kill

Slow down to avoid a ban in the future

If i have helped in any way hit my star.

any advice given is based on experience and learnt from this site :-)

What I mean is I don't remember exceeding the limit, or any speed cameras going off, I was definitely on the road at that time. Is there a way that you can check that the speed limit was 40mph, or do we just have to accept the Police's word for it?

You could request photographic evidence to support the claim they are making. This will prompt the reply as to how it is proved. You may get the opportunity to attend a speed awareness course which will stop the points added to your licence. Have you attended any courses in the last three years?
