How to avoid a speeding ticket

If you have been caught by a speed camera you may want to find out if there is any way of avoiding a speeding fine. The short answer is that most speeding tickets are correctly issued and that you cannot avoid paying the fine. However there are cases where either the correct procedure has not been followed in issuing the ticket or that it is a case of mistaken identity.

The first thing that will happen if you get flashed by a speed camera is that the registered keeper of the vehicle will receive a notice of intended prosecution within 14 days. If this does not arrive then you are probably in luck – maybe the speed camera didnt have any film in it.

If you can prove that you were not the driver or that you or your vehicle were not at the specified location then you may have a good defence. Pepipoo is a good forum that can provide you with a lot of helpful advice to help you avoid a sppeding fine.
