Thank you Jo
So, to clarify, it is not possible to obtain verification, without effectively escalating the matter to a court case?
The notice reads: "If the above states an offence of exceeding the speed limit, the recorded speed was 70 mph. I know I was not travelling even remotely close to that speed as I was within 50 yds of a 40 mph sign and conscious of dropping speed from 50 to 40 in front of the detector van, placed between the two areas.
There is a phone number on the NIP and I had planned to call it tomorrow to query the details. From what you say, the provision of the details I require may cause me to pass the deadline for response?
So I can acknowledge I was the driver and still ask for the details? If I accept and pay the fixed penalty and am still awaiting the details - which I believe would show I was not driving at that speed, is there scope for me to be cleared later?
Does that ever happen? Or is paying the fixed penalty an irrevocable statement of guilt?
