Hi, and thanks for the reply. I was indeed speeding - I was caught with a radar gun travelling at 62mph in a 40mph limit (I wrongly believed I was in a 60mph zone). I am not disputing the offence, simply questioning the timing of the communication, based on what the officer told me.
It was a hire car, registered in my name.
I don't know for sure, but I presume they would have been; this is Avis, if that's any help.
