Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return You do not need to wait here as you will get an email when I reply.
Does it say how the speed was calculated, ie by laser?
Not sure. I have sent off the form to confirm I was the driver at the time of alleged offence
Thanks. You can google the make and type of camera.
They don't all need white lines.
Some use it on laser
Same like a speed gun Police use - no white lines there
But you should google the make and model
If you do not believe you have committed the offence you dont need to accept it and the matter would go to Court.
However they are likely to have an ticket expert attend that can explain how the device works, if it was used in accordance with manufacturers recommendations etc.
But you can google the make and model and indeed ask the ticket unit
Of course the NIP needs to have been sent within 14 days of the original offence date, if it was not, it is out of time
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
If the camera has white lines on the other side of the road to catch motorists from behind shouldn't the lines also be on my side of the road as well?
For forward facing, not necessarily. It may be using laser.
But ask for details on how it works/make model
You can google what the requirements are
But I am saying it may not necessarily need white lines in the road
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
There may be sensors in the road surface so no white lines
But if it required lines and there are no lines, they may necessarily be able to prove speed, ie if they are worn
But if the camera is not designed to have lines, then you may have been caught
Does that clarify?
"But if it required lines and there are no lines, they may necessarily be able to prove speed, ie if they are worn"
What does "they may necessarily be able to prove speed" mean?
