    how long does it take for the ticket to come in the post and what is the law on a time scale etc.
    i was told they have to send you it within 14 days of the offense and if you ask to see the proof you can get it thrown out, dunno how true this is. yes i was a bad boy and no excuse i was speeding. 38 in a 30 on a hill going down.

    they were hid behind trees, i saw no cop cars or anything of authority. just one person with a gun and someone else with a notepad writing the plates down. they both had high viz jackets and wasnt in line with the road, they were basically aiming diagnal 20 feet in the hedge. thats not a true reading if ya not level is it. i have a good mind to ask for photographic proof. it wasnt in my work van it was in my car aswell and i was spose to be working but took that morning off to go get fence panels which were on my roof. i could be a complete toerag and say it wasnt me my car only gets used weekends which normally it does.

    If are you over the speed limit and they use a radar gun you are stopped there and then by police.

    You are talking about an NIP

    Notification Of Intent to Proscute.

    They have 14 WORKING days to issue one.

    If you are caught by a speeding van or fixed camera. Then you dont need to be stopped.

    You my friend have been through a community speed trap. You will get a letter stating you was speeding and usually that's it.

    The loophole you are on about was closed years ago. If you can't provide who was driving

    Then you get 6 points lol. So that old chestnut don't work.

    Speeding cost me my licence twice, and had to do a retest too. Costly these days.
    It's bus lane camera's here you have to watch out for in Plymouth.

    but on google it said a sumons i gotta fill it in and send 60 quid and my licence and get 3 points. there was a thing on the radio that thames valley police were doing speed checks but i seriously never thought they would do it like this, i mean 20 foot from the kerb behind trees ffs. how can that be accurate. its basically saying a speed camera on the side of the road can get oncoming traffic for speeding when it cant. im going to call them and ask for certificate of calibration for the speed gun and photographic proof coz them cameras have been known to pick up bbrick walls going 50mph before. i wouldnt care bout the points to be honest but £60 fine. OR pay 79.50 to go on a course. i aint got time to go on a course to watch videos.
