I was issued a FPN for speeding today and it’s the first time I’ve ever been given a ticket but I was wondering if I would be able to contest it under the grounds of the details being incorrect? They haven’t updated the gun thing and the time of the “offence” is wrong by an hour due to the clocks going back so TECHNICALLY I wasn’t speeding at that time? Anyone know if I’d have a chance? I almost threw up when I got stopped because it’s not like me at all and I’ve been worried sick about it all day
If you were stopped then no, you won't be able to contest it unless you're willing to pay for legal representation. Had you received a notice in the post with the incorrect time you would have a good chance, especially if you were able to prove you were elsewhere at the stated time.
Basically, it's not worth it. You were speeding, just pay up.
1- I have a speed limiter I normally use on my car but switched it off because I was trying to get to my unwell daughter, I was NOT LATE, and I’m not the only one in the whole of mumsnet that has ever driven a bit too fast, no need to judge and be mean, I was asking for advice
Jellybean it is life or death for my daughter she has a health condition but that’s mine and her business I didn’t feel I had to disclose that fact!! I accept I shouldn’t of been doing it my god I know I was wrong but 34 in a 30 and the circumstances surrounding it is a bit :/ for me and yes I do feel sick about it, I’ve never been in trouble with the law in my life
