Check Your Notice of Intended Prosecution Here
If you have received a Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) we know that you will be worried and you will want to check whether or not it is legally compliant with the requirements of Section 1 Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988. Under this section, certain road traffic offences require the service of a Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) within 14 days of the date of the alleged offence. When counting the 14 days you take off the day of the alleged offence, therefore counting the 14 days from the day after.
Was the Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) Served on you within 14 days of the alleged offence at your last known address?
Please note that this includes being given a verbal Notice of Intended Prosecution by a Police Officer on being stopped at the time of the alleged offence. This satisfies the Notice of Intended Prosecution rules. Again, remember to take off the day of the alleged offence. So if the alleged offence happened on the first day of the month, did you get the Notice of Intended Prosecution at your last known address by the 15th day of the month
