A friend* of mine just found out he got nicked for speeding 2 and a half years ago! It was in a bucket of post delivered to the new house by an ex girlfriend that never got opened.
The letter says 36mph in a 30 zone. 3pts and a 60pound fine or go on a speed awareness course.
Since this alleged speeding incident he has registered his car to his new address, updated his driving licence to the new address and re insured his car twice stating he has no convictions. At no point has the mention of a speeding offence raised its head.
He called his ex girlfriend (they are on good terms so no chance of a wind up) and she has said no balifs have called demanding £1000 and no post either.
What should he do? Do the authorities write these sort of things off after a while?
He sort of assumes that after so long and so many chances for the system to catch up with him that it has 'gone away'
Any help or good advice welcomed.
