    Thumbs Down Speeding ticket!!!

    HELLLOOOOOOOO PEOPLE!!
    I got a letter throught this morning confirming i have been caught speeding by a fixed camera doing 47, in a 40! i was kind of expecting it as i new it had flashed, it happened on 28th of june & now its the 17th of july? now hasnt that gone past the 14 day limit, but also i was in a courtesy car so is the delay because the ticket has gone to them first then to me. hopefully theres a loop whole in the system to break me out of this? any information would be appreciated THANKQ

    Matt,

    sorry bud, they got up to 3 months to get you if i remember rightly. (maybe longer)
    take it on the chin and pay it is my advice

    Edit: 2 years ago i over took some one (on a 1/2 mile straight) but had to cross double whites, as im getting back in the rozzers came around the corner iup ahead. long story short i argued the toss with him and refused a on the spot fixed penalty (3 pts £80fine) and said i would challenge him in court, 5mths later i thought i was home and dry and the court letter came through
    end result: 3 pts and a whoppin £200 fine from the court.

    MY ADVICE: PAY IT!!!

    Well to answer your question, no there is no loop hole, you just have to pay the fine and send off your licence.

    your right about the 14 days, they've got to notify the cars owner (registered keeper) within 14 days which would be the courtesy cars owners, who then have to provide driver details within 28 days, from this point they have 3 months to issue you notice! i'd imagine as you have ticket already then all these points have been applied and followed

    they've got you fair and square.

    Just hope you get offered the speeding course instead of the points!
