Thanks

Its easy enough to deal with the NIP. You just send it back saying that your car was not there at that time as, indeed, that is the truth.

The risk is that they will just issue a new one with the correct details. It does tend to suggest their GATSOs are incorrectly set. Sometimes that does happen when the clocks go back in particular but that hasn't happened for a while.

At that stage though, you do need to complete the S172 request. If you dont they will just summons you for failing to identify which carries 6 points and a much higher fine.

If you do complete it may all fall away as they may throw their hand in. If they do not then they will offer you a fixed penalty or a summons. If you want to contest this then you can take the matter to court and argue essentially that the fact of the incorrect setting casts doubt upon the reading. The risk of that is that they may dig their heels in and try to prove that it does not which would require them to call experts and that could be an expensive costs order if they find against you. That is worst case scenario obviously.

Can I clarify anything for you?
