Hello, I am a solicitor with 20 years experience. I will try to answer this for you.
The duty is on the police to notify you within 14 days of the offence. If they actually stopped you and spoke to you then they will almost certainly be able to argue that the officer gave you notice when he spoke to you. In which case they have 6 months to commence proceedings.
Sorry but probably no loophole there.
