Hi what is it you wish to know please?
Were you speeding?
The speed awareness course will only cover one instance of passing the point of enforcement. If your issue here is that you may have driven past two speed cameras within close succession then I'm afraid that is not a defence.
They will probably offer a fixed penalty for the other offence unless, of course you are not suitable for a fixed penalty because you have too many other points for instance. If so then you may be lucky as they may forget to summon you.
Can I clarify anything for you?
If the speeds are as you say proportionate to the limit then it would be three points and a fine of £100 and the speed awareness course on the first. I'm not sure why it would seem harsh? Those are the fixed penalties and there were two instances?
the issue is not whether you realised that you had been issued the first ticket but whether or not you were exceeding the speed limit.
It is not worth appealing because you have no defence at least that you are disclosing here
were there regular street lights?
I'm happy to continue with this but please rate my answer.
Thank you. It is a defence to say that the speed limit signs were not adequate. However that is quite a high test. In a restricted zone they only have to sign the speed limit by displaying a regular pattern of street lighting.
I do realise that was your wish but I'm afraid that just does not amount to a defensible request that they would listen to.
Come what may, you must of passed to GATT so is or other detection devices and if so then those are two separate offences.
You could try to argue that this amounts to one continuous act of driving at speed but the problem is that that is not speeding. That is driving without due care and attention and so it is not a point worth making.
driving at speed over a prolonged period could be considered driving without due care I'm afraid. C
I'm not sure what you mean?
Well, that is one explanation.
The other is that they wrote to you and it wasn't delivered.
the issue anybody is who was registered at the DVLA.
No, that is not what I said.
What I said is that it would comply with their obligations. That is entirely different.
I wouldn't take much notice of pepipoo. The unqualified posters will not pay the costs order for you when you follow their advice and lose.
Actually you would have been prosecuted for possession with intent to supply or actual supply and you would have got many years custody. Simple possession may have attracted a caution.
On the face of it, you cannot win. You seem to accept speeding. You could put them to proof I suppose.
Ask them to prove the allegation.
In fairness, they probably will but you can.
