I was stopped and issued a NIP. This happened

This answer was rated:

I was stopped for speeding and issued a NIP. This happened on 16th June 2015. The Offence details on the ticket is dated 16/06/16 and to date I have not received any communication from the police - what should I do?
Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
Do nothing. They may forget to summons or issue a fixed penalty in time. If they do you will walk away with nothing.
All contacting them will do is remind them of the need to prosecute you.
If it is just a NIP and not a HORT/1 requiring you to produce your documents then there is no point in reminding them.
Can I clarify anything for you?

As the ticket is dated incorrectly i.e 16th June 2016 - are they able to continue?
Yes, realistically. That type of technical problem is a greatly overstated issue on the internet.
They will just amend the date and rely on the verbal NIP the officer would have given you.

thank you.
No problem and all the best.
