Thanks.

I am sorry but they have 28 days to issue a fine by CCTV. Its the police that have to issue a NIP within 14 days. The Councils have much longer.

Obviously though there are other points of appeal.

I'm not sure whether you deny the offence? You can always put them to proof upon adequacy of lines and signs and whether or not the stop amounts to a de minimus one or whether it was substantial.

On your main point though, as long as they issue within 28 days they can rely upon it.

Can I clarify anything for you?

I don't deny the offence but there are no signs


For cctv monitoring. Also what is the limit for de minimus.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 3 years ago.
There isn't a limit. It depends on the facts of the case. It is for a court to decide. It covers very technical breaches?

I'm not sure what you mean about CCTV monitoring?

I'm happy to continue with this but please remember to leave feedback for my answer.
