Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
You can of course fight it but if they produce the calibration certificate then you are stuck
People try this method all the time.
In reality the cameras are Home Office approved, they are checked in accordance with the manufacturers recommendations and the officers have training.
Courts hear all these excuses too often and convict generally.
As for the time if it was 9am or 9.15am then this can be questioned under cross examination but in any event the Police are able to amend any summons to reflect a correct time and the Court just have to be satisfied that you were in the area at about the time and that it was your car and you.
You are not saying you were not there as you had the ticket and refused to sign.
Therefore what you should do is take the points and run.
If you go to Court you are likely to get if convicted, 4-6 points and costs of around £300
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
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thanks, ***** ***** honest I expected that answer but you read all these stories online and wonder if there maybe something in it. The issue i have now is my license photo is out of date.. I only noticed this about a month ago and tried to update online however I had not received a letter and was unable to. Same problem in the post office. I have now applied for a passport which I am waiting for and had intended to update online once the passport has been recieved. Will they accept this or am I in for more grief?
It may be an issue but you can't get points for an expired licence where you would have been entitled to one. it would be a small fine only.
brilliant, that i can deal with. Thanks for your help :)
Can I clarify anything else for you?
no that's all thank you.
