Just a quick question so i can clear something up.....

If someone is caught speeding, is there still a time limit that the police have to bring it to court / charge the offender by ?

Someone i know has been charged with 71mph in a 60, and will get the obligatory 3 points and £60. But the actual date of offence was over 4 months ago.....the police have only just got in touch with him about it.....

I was under the impression that they had to do something within 3 months of the date of offence or couldnt proceed with it.....am i wrong ?

Cheers

Michael:D

was he caught by a camera. Read last week end that if you request photo, a copy also has to be sent to the clerk of the court. He must receive it 7 days before the hearing, if it doesn't arrive on time they can't convict. Apparently 90+% are late but very few people ask the clerk for proof of receipt.

brummie is right:D you must ask for proof that they caught you, the reason they get away with it is that so many people just roll over and pay:mad:
