Speeding Fines

Speeding fines, in isolation, may not amount to more than a small fine and points endorsed upon your licence. However, if you receive multiple NIPs (Notice of Intended Prosecution) you could find yourself facing far more serious consequences. If you receive more than one NIP, you should contact us to arrange a conference with a road traffic barrister at the earliest opportunity.
