HiThank you for your question and welcome to Just Answer. I will try to help with this. Please RATE my answer OK SERVICE or above.What is the date of the offence?
08/12/11 at approx 10am.
Whats the date of the summons? It is usually in the top right hand corner.
Are you ok?
summons date is 18/06/12
That might be a point you can take.Give me 10 - 20 mins to type out an answer.
You are going to have to go to court upon the summons one way or another. They have summonsed you for consideration of disqualification.When you do get to court ask the Prosecutor what was the date upon which the information was laid. They must do that within 6 months of the offence and actually given that the summons was outside of those dates they may just fall outside. Its worth checking and free to do.If you were doing 82 mph in a 50 mph zone though you are at risk of 6 points or 7 - 56 days disqualification. I would expect points rather than disqualification basically because you are in the middle of the sentencing bracket and you have a hitherto unblemished record. You will be fined but only an amount in the low hundreds.There is never a great deal you can say about these offences really. You should really just be expressing remorse and emphasising your otherwise good record.Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer OK SERVICE or above and then I will give you related information for free.
