Notice of Intended Prosecution

Notice of Intended Prosecution

A Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) must be given for certain prescribed motoring offences. Ordinarily, a Notice of Intended Prosecution must be given within 14 days of the date of the offence.

This principle is crucial where a driver is alleged to have been caught speeding by a speed camera. The police must send a Notice of Intended Prosecution within the strict 14 day time limit. Failure to do so can be fatal to a driver being convicted of a motoring offence.

#1 Motoring Solicitors have represented clients who have demonstrated that they did not receive a Notice of Intended Prosecution from the Police. This can be for a variety of reasons, including failure of the postal system.

The Prosecution must also prove that the NIP was served in accordance with the Criminal Procedure Rules.

At #1 Motoring Solicitors we have persuaded the Magistrates Court that the failing to serve a Notice of Intended Prosecution within the 14 day statutory time limit prevents clients from being convicted of a motoring offence.
