Hi jo I was pulled over for speeding on the a14 Suffolk I was driving a work colleges car as we were travelling from the north east we split the driving. When we were pulled over the police officer checked my insurance and it turned out I wasn't coverd 3rd party but when he written the ticket out he didn't put the time on it, does that mean the ticket isn't valid or is there a way that it can help me
Many thanks Robert

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
91 in a 70 the nip was right but the ticket didn't have the time on it and plus i wasn't insured like I thought I was
Expert:  Jo C. replied 3 years ago.
I am sorry but this is a bad point then.
This is a ticket that just isn't timed. It isn't even marked with the wrong time. It just doesn't have a time on it. There will be a time in their notes and anyway you don't deny speeding at least at some point.
There is not very much that invalidates a ticket. These FPNs are not required in law anyway. The only thing that is required in law is that a notice of intended prosecution is delivered either in writing or verbally at the scene.
I am sorry but that is that reality of your position.
Can I clarify anything for you?
