Alex Watts : Have you changed address please?
Alex Watts : What is date of offence and date of summons please?

thanks for reply, date of offence was 26.11.13 and summons to court was early july this year , i am still looking for all the paperwork involved. my address is the same, also when they sent the the first letter i replied saying i did not know the driver, they are saying they sent a second letter which i did not receive then early july a summons to go to court,!! I have lost sleep over this, if i don't reply straight away it's because i am using the local library computer, yours dave hurford.

Alex Watts : Ok. In that case the summons is out of time. If you have been summonsed for speeding then they have 6 months from the date of offence.
Alex Watts : Therefore it is out of time and should be stayed.
