I am often asked how long the police have to issue a summons after you are caught by a speed camera.
There are 2 times limits to take into account.
The police have 14 days after you are flashed by a speed camera to send a notice of intended prosecution to the registered keeper of the vehicle. That means that if you own the car and it is registered at your address if you have not heard anything within 14 days then there is nothing the police can do.
Once you have received the notice of intended prosecution then the Police have 6 months to apply for a summons, sometime you get the summons after the 6 month period but the police must have applied for the summons within 6 months.Tags: motoring summons, speed camera, Speeding
