Woke up this morning, checked my post, opened the letter and what do i find???

Notice of Intended Prosecution (b*stards)

87mph in a 70mph...could have been a lot worse!!

Not sure if i have to go to court or not (can anyone shed any light??)

I was caught by a mobile camera, just to warn you all if your on the M4 near the Seven Bridge Tolls. Last time i'm going to bloody Wales!

You have to incriminate yourself or others by sending back the form saying who was driving the car at the time.
You then (if you was the driver) get the option via another nice letter to pay the stealth tax and take the points like a good citizen or plead your case and pay even bigger fine cos you are guilty before you step in the court.

If of course you owned the car illegally or had not registered it properly to avoid tax and insurance then you would not get caught by the system, only honest legal road users pay these fines

Good man, just the way I was. Send it back right away and hope you never hear anything again like me. They have 6months to prosecute from when you receive the NIP and I think sending it back quickly catches them out a bit ;)

Everyone I know that arsed them around etc. got done in the end.

my brother got one of them through the post and ignored it. He never heard anything again. Thats was 18 months ago.

Check the date of the offence aswell as a girl here just got one the other day from October !!! They gotta get it in to the post within 14days of the offence

Yes, but they can prosecute for not replying.

To go with Buster's line, you need to reply and refuse to comply.

I got done at the same point...they hide the camera in the bridge sometimes at Magor services....the van is hidden in bushes to the side....I argued a later prosecution and ended up in court...was lucky to keep my licence but had another 4 pts to my already 6pts..so am on borrowed time....

Having been harrased by the Welsh police on three different occasions and finding a way around the issues with no points or fines, 105mph, 89mph and driving a certain vehicle illegally in the outside lane at an excessive speed, if anyone would like some info on these they can PM me but for obvious reasons I dont want to put it on a thread!
