Ask a Traffic Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, thank you for your question. My name is***** am a barrister and will assist you with this issue today.
Please be aware that this is an e-mail service rather than a live chat. Sometimes there will be some delay between responses but I will try to reply as soon as possible.
Firstly, whether you have committed an offence or not you have to fill in the 172 notice. It is a legal requirement to reply to the notice, if you don't do it in time you get 6 points and a fine.
In terms of the signage. I'd be gobsmacked if the signage wasn't adequate as that would be very rare indeed. It doesn't matter whether you saw the sign or not, the question is whether there is a sign showing the speed limit.
There are a lot of rumours on the internet about the types of signage but a lot of the laws about this aren't applicable anymore.
By all means show me the photos/map and I'll take a look.
Can you post the photos?
