I was caught speeding on 05/09/2016 by mobile camera.

Resolved Question:

I was caught speeding on 05/09/2016 by mobile camera. However the NIP is dated 23/09/2016. Is it still legal?

Are you the registered keeper?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No It is a company car from a leasing company
Expert:  Jo C. replied 10 months ago.

Is this the first NIP?

I presume the first was to the leasing company?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
It would have been, but I have no knowlege of that.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 10 months ago.

In that case they are in time.

They only have to send a NIP out within 14 days to the registered keeper. When it reaches the actual driver is a non issue as long as the matter is summonsed within 6 months.

They will have sent it out to the leasing company who will have identified you. That must have been in time looking at the dates.

I'm very sorry but that is the reality I'm afraid.

Can I clarify anything for you?
