Can you tell me how after information has been at court how

This answer was rated:

Can you tell me how long after information has been laid at court how long they then have to issue a summons? Is it as long as they need/want or is there a time limit?

There isn't a time limit upon that but it is an administrative process so usually it is no more than a few weeks.

Can I clarify anything for you?

Would it ever be as long as 6 months after or does it never happen that long after?

No.The most I have ever seen was 6 weeks.

Would it be reasonable to say something that happened over a year ago that I have never heard anything about since could now be forgotten about and lesson learnt?

If you haven't receive a summons and they have your address then they have forgotten to summons in all likelihood.

Could they go back to this then or would it be too late now?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I wasn't actually stopped at the time but expected to receive something in the post and never have, its over a year so I wanted to know if there was ever a chance of anything happening now.

Yes, they could but they won't.

It won't happen.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Ok thanks. So I can consider it over now?

Yes, it is not likely to revive now.

Just out of curiosity, if you are not stopped at the time but still spotted by police or a member of the public and then reported are some things perhaps not followed up as it would use up a considerable amount of time to track an address, witnesses etc for a minor traffic offence or is generally most things followed up?

I'm not sure what you mean?
