I have just been issued with a TOR on the road side from

Resolved Question:

Hi, I have just been issued with a TOR on the road side from a traffic officer, however i have not signed the TOR. Does this affect it at all, as in the SOP for giving out these report it says the driver should sign:-
3.6 The TOR contains appropriate terminology for the alleged offender to be reported by using the standard wording of a Notice of Intended Prosecution and cautioned. There is also additional space for any reply to be noted. The driver should be invited to sign the document prior to being provided with the duplicate copy of the form.

What was the offence, was it speeding?

Hi, yes it was, speeding on the motorway.
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
It's bad news I am afraid. Just because the notice was not signed does not invalidate it. It should be signed but if not, that does not void it.
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?
