Citation for speeding
Jul 9th, 2012 at 8:49pm
Sons girlfriend got caught speeding at 62 mph. She wa sjust over the fixed penalty limit and has received a citation as a result. She was not aware that the area was a 40 mph limit, and was caught by a couple of poloice officers with moblie camera.
Anyway, she did not receive any letter advising that she had been formally charged. I thought that you had to have notification within fourteen days. She only received a citation today, some fifteen weeks after the incident.
Also, there is an error in the timing. The citation says that she was caught speeding at 0940 hrs. Then at 1052 hrs she was formally charged. This is way off the mark, she was in the police car for no more than ten minutes, was formally charged and released.
Questions are:
1. Should she have had written communication within two weeks of the incident advising that she had been charged and a citation would follow later?

2. If yes she should have received some form of written communication, is there any grounds to contest the charge?

3. Also is there any grounds to contest based on the erronous timings on the citation?
