Customer: replied 3 years ago.

speeding, 70 in a 50 on moterway,was stopped bye police useing a handheld speed camara

Is it speeding alone or failing to identify?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

speeding only,fully complied with them including producing my licence with my current address

In that case they would seem to be out of time.

They have six months to lay an information before the Court.

They do not have to summons you within that time but they have to lay an information. Actually if this happened in August then I make that eight months from May so its not all that likely that the information was in time but its certainly something you should explore at court.

If they are out of time then they are too late to prosecute

Can I clarify anything for you?

i was due in court in july 14th according to the summonse but answered not guilty with the form they provided so am waiting to hear back regarding a trial date,if i do get taken to court should i ask if it is not time barred

Yes, just ask them to check the date of the information. If it is too late you will escape with nothing.
