Speeding - Expert Legal Advice For Drivers
You could be stopped at the roadside by the police and advised that consideration will be given to prosecuting you for speeding. More frequently the first you will know of a speeding allegation is when the postman drops a S712 Notice under the 1988 Road Traffic Act through your letter box. This requires you, as the registered keeper of a vehicle, to state certain information you have as to the identity of the driver on the occasion when speeding has been alleged. Don’t ‘put your head in the sand’. You must respond to any such requirement within 28 days of service of the Notice or you could be committing a separate offence.
