YES , BUT I WAS PULLED UP WITH ONE OTHER DRIVER BEHIND ME AND THE SPEED SUGGESTED ON THE ANPR WAS 94 MPH ! IF IT HAD BE UNDER 90 MPH I POSSIBLY WOULD HAVE BEEN OFFERED TO GO ON A SPEED AWARENESS COURSE . WHEN ASKED IF I HAD ALREADY ANY POINTS ON MY LICENSE I SAID NO AND THE OTHER DRIVER SAID YES .
That is the big question ! Take the £100 fine and three points ,or go to court . what are my chances of winning ? unmarked car and six years old , I just think underhanded . clear dry day no congestion , momentarily lapse of .........?
Thanks for your help .Will have to have a long think about what you have said .
Hi Jo C, Adrian here again . I Have just read about some police forces using fixed notices with NIP for speeding incorporated like the one I received .The offence code quoted was SV77011 ? And I also remember the traffic officer mentioning it was a ANPR ! " look on the ANPR and the speed " Which oviously would record my vehicle and the one behind me , but do they record speed ? as the speed of the Vehicle as pointed out !
Oh right , I'm a bit confused now . was it just a ANPR . Was the Officer trying to pull a fast one by suggesting it was VASCAR speed recorder ! .As I mentioned earlier, At no point did I suggest I had been speeding .
I Just looked at what I was shown . I'm a bit annoyed with myself for not hanging around to see wether the other driver pulled over received a Fixed penalty notice or just a producer . He was writing the form out as i left !
Yes you could be right . Is it still worth taking it any further ? I don't dispute that I was exceeding the speed limit, but 94mph. When 95 would mean going to court !
Before I forget .There was only one officer in the police car , I thought there had to be two in the Vehicle ?
Ok ,thanks . Enjoy rest of your day .
Hi Jo C , Further to previous conversation . Can you dispute details on the FPN ? The Scene of the incident , meaning road details and the time of day written on FPN. If you think the details are incorrect .
