Don't want to **** on your cornflakes but I'd say give it a few more days. How longs 2nd class take?

Should be alright after that, unless you're REALLY unlucky that it got lost in the post

Royal Mail say that the majority of 2nd class letters usually arrive after 3 days from posting. That's what I tell our customers when they ask,

Probably safe, but not definitely I'm afraid. I think they technically have months to serve the notice, but usually do it within weeks. The long time is due to problems contacting owner, or finding out driver etc.

If you are the registered keeper, and address etc. is correct, then I suspect you are safe.

Bloody ridiculous isn't it. The terrible driving I see every day is never challenged by the Police, but stray a few safe MPH over the limit and you can be totally stuffed.

Not a dig at the copper on the street, but their bosses and the other powers-that-be are completely on the wrong track IMHO. Knicking people for minor speeding will do very little to improve road safety......

The NIP has to be issued within 14 days of the offence. This includes paperwork to confirm the driver which needs to be returned within a set period.

They then have up to 6 months to issue proceedings in whichever form that may take, course, fine or court summons.

I sweated it out for 5 months after returning my NIP then got a summons

The only difference is in the physics of velocity and energy involved:


Kinetic energy = 0.5 x mass x velocity(squared)



So a vehicle travelling at 20mph has less than half the energy of the same at 30mph, and it increases exponentially. Every extra mph adds a disproportionate amount of kinetic energy (and shiz factor if it all goes wrong).
Though I suppose your point was that a vehicle driven at high speed is generally being done so by someone who is also driving it like an eejit!

I worry a lot about people who drive too slowly, they just toddle along at 35 or 40 in a 60 limit and seem totally unaware of what is going on outside their cage and the long line of frustrated people behind. Sometimes when you try to pass they speed up, and if you stay behind they will often go through a 30 limit at 40.

I tend to stay within speed limit and on our housing estate will do 20 in the 30 limit because kids and pets around, but I don't take the p155 at 35 in 50 / 60 limits.

Ah yes! The 40 milers! Those folk, often of a generation, that do 40mph wherever and whenever, regardless of the chaos they cause! Built up area 40mph, open road 40mph, motorway same... Should not be on the road, full stop. No effing idea of driving, a danger to everyone around them.

I see a lot of them on the A140 towards Norwich, a quite narrow A road. That's where my WRX comes in handy when I'm in the cage.

Well, it's been 28 days since I went past the camera van and no NIP. I think I've dodged a bullet and used up my luck for this year. I'm the bikes' only owner and I've been at the same address for 5 years so finding me wouldn't have been hard. It has made me more aware of speed limits though.
