Speeding tickets or fixed penalty notices are issued by the police where the recorded speed of a vehicle falls within a certain threshold. The APCO Guidelines define the speeds at which it is appropriate to offer a speeding ticket or fixed penalty notice. Where a speeding ticket isissued, the Court cannot then prosecute a speeding offence.
A speeding ticket will not be offered to a driver who faces a ‘totting’ disqualification from driving and who is approaching 12 penalty points. For example, a motorist will not be offered a speeding ticket, where he/she already has 9 penalty points endorsed on their licence.
If you do not accept a speeding ticket or there appears to be defect in the procedure, #1 Motoring Solicitors can advise you on the next steps. Any defect in the fixed penalty notice procedure can often be fatal to the successful prosecution of a speeding offence.
