Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, how are you? Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is***** am a solicitor and I will be assisting you today. Please note there may be delays in responding as I am away helping other customers but I will get back to you as soon as I can. I may also need to ask you some clarifying questions to determine the legal position.
Thanks for your message, and sorry to hear this happened. The "14 day rule" only applies to notifications received by post, and not when you are stopped roadside; in this scenario the police have 6 months to summon you to court so the court summons in your situation would not be invalid.
You will need to decide what your plea is when you go to court, and if you have a defence or not i.e. you were either speeding or not and of course, evidence is key here both for you and the police - who still have to prove you were speeding.
I hope this helps. Thank you again for visiting JustAnswer, please let me know if you need me to clarify anything or if you have any additional questions. I am happy to help.
