Hi - and when did you receive this NIP please?
were you stopped at the scene?
Ok. Are you the registered keeper?
Does it say reminder on there anywhere?
Has there been any reason for the delay?
Like a recent transfer to your company?
Then if that is right they are time barred.
If you are the registered keeper and you were not stopped at scene then the NIP and S172 should have been sent within 14 days.
If they have not done so then they would not be able to bring a speeding prosecution although they may try.
You do need to respond naming the driver though. If you don't they will just charge you with failing to identify which does not rest on the 14 day notification. That is probably what they are hoping you will do.
Nothing is ever 100% guaranteed. You should win on these facts but that doesn't mean you wouldn't be prosecuted.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Do you mean the summons?
You have had the notice already.
They will probably make an offer of a fixed penalty.
Then you have to decide how much risk you want to take. If you are happy to risk being prosecuted then refuse the fixed penalty and invite them to summons.
