    I am not sure if this is the right section or not but here goes......

    I think a couple of weeks ago on my way home form work I was flashed doing 60 or there abouts in a 30 zone, but I hadn't heard anything until yesterday when I get a registered letter in the post.
    I haven't picked the letter up but I have an odd fealing it may be a fine or summons.
    So does anyone know if they send fines or summons's registered post??

    Thanks

    It'll be an invitation to go to court.

    One you can't refuse.

    Even if you have to go to court you still get the NIP first, because you have to identify the driver. The summons then follows several months later. NIPs are rarely sent recorded delivery, so I am sure you are safe.

    They dont send post like this registered. So its unlikely. Even court cases.

    Always found that odd tbh

    Letters of NIP or from court are never signed for.

    Which side of the road were you on? Keep in mind that it can only catch you on a rear-facing shot. Also it might not have had film in it.

    Turns out it was just a letter from my insurance company saying I need to send them some paperwork :D

    Whether or not the police convict you for speeding, I have already convicted you of being a berk.

    Meh, depends on the 30 zone in question really. Built up estate, I agree. Country lane on the outskirts of town with good visibility, not so much of an issue.

    Dumfries and Galloway have been known to send NIPs using registered post.

    Double the speed limit isn't really justifiable.

    Disagree, there are plenty of 30 limits where it is possible to do 60 perfectly safely in.

    Why were you driving so fast in a 30?

    They don't tend to have speed cameras on them though and if the op can miss a big yellow box and the asociated road markings then he probably wasn't driving safely.
