NIP Out by One Hour

Question:

Speeding

When my letter for speeding came through they had the wrong time, out by one hour as I was working then, 2 weeks later they sent a letter telling me there clock was out by one hour. According to my work they caught quite a few people that day & I’m guessing they’re sending it back with proof it wasn’t them who were driving as we have proof we were working at the time of offence. How do you rate my chances?

Thanks

Rob Says:

Have you got any points already? If so, how many? Are you a new driver?

In my view you need to go back and accept that you were the driver at the correct time (if that is the case) and then argue that the NIP – which has to be sent out within 14 days of the alleged offence – was defective.

As long as they didn’t send the correction within 14 days of the date of the offence then you will have a good argument to defend the original speeding matter. Don’t get yourself into trouble though regarding failing to name the driver – as that offence doesn’t require a NIP and now that they have corrected the timings you won’t have an argument.

Come back to me if you would like my help with trying to avoid the points on the speeding matter.
