    NIP should be within 14 days.

    But thats only for a speed camera, not sure about being stopped. Usually you are informed of your offence and the punishment there and then unless its something that requires a court hearing.

    you'll get a court summons through the post, I'd imagine you had a verbal nip in the back of the cop car.

    The procurator fiscal will decide what you are to be charged with, taking everything into consideration, location, speed, weather etc.. and then the decision will be made as to charge you just for speeding or to upgrade the offence, dangerous, wreckless and so on

    Verbal NIP in the back of the car or roadside would have been along the lines of 'you are being reported to the courts for the consideration and questioning of prosecuting you for the offence of speeding' you should have then been cautioned and they have 6 months within which to summons you to court.

    Why didnt you get a £60 and 3 point FPN were you tanking it far too much they decided to summons you or were you deemed to be driving not accordingly to the conditions and speeding too?

    Sounds familiar that

    I think you'll be right, if the offence warrents more than the 60 quid and 3 points then its up to tha man in the curly wig.
