Good Evening, I was caugt doing 44mph whilst overtaking a hogger in front of me, to my luck there was a police officer on those exact 5 secs of me overtaking. She said: in 28 days u will get a letter from us. The letter arrived today, 39 days after the limit she told me. Can I deny to accept it based on that??? Its a conditional offer, I do no have the option of a course cause I was over 42mph,, thanks in advance. If i can refuse to pay it, how do I proceed? btw I was driving the vehicle,, I was stopped and identified immediately as the driver.
Its a bit frustrating, they tell me I will get a letter in 28 days, it takes them 39... if I was at or under 42mph they would have given me the option of a awareness course, but I was at 44, so they can choose not to obey deadlines but I must obey the 42 to the letter. The guy driving at 10mph in front of me should be the one getting a ticket.. I guess thats all, I will just pay the fine and get the points,, thanks for your help, have a good night.
