      Don't want to worry you unnecessarily but an officer on other more important business can take reg details and prosecute later.
      I would keep an eye on the letterbox for a couple more weeks before relaxing.

      The only thing you can be sure of for now is that it wont be prosecuted if you were not notified within 14 days of the alleged offence and even that has caveats. A quick Google will give you all the facts. Good luck and I hope you don't suffer too badly, pro plus always worked to stop my IBS I don't know why.

      Perhaps now you can reflect calmly on how you managed to do 50 mph in a 30 mph zone. Did you deliberately exceed the speed limit, in which case you were lucky not to get a speeding ticket, or were you unaware that you had entered a 30 mph zone, in which case you could have been prosecuted for careless driving.

      The guy in the video I cross posted doesn't help. He was doing over 200 in a 30 zone!

      Re: stopped for speeding No ticket

      Can anyone do the maths to work out how far a motorcyclist would fly if his bike hit a low wall at 200 mph? I'm not sure that a helmet and leathers would offer too much protection!

      The only caveat to 14 day rule is that you took unusual steps to hide your identity or impede the process (dirty/missing numberplate etc..) 14 days is the cutoff, if anything comes now you will be able to get it dropped.

      apparently the area I unawaringly did 50 in is a split zone Speed Area Half is 30 and Half is 40. and only the 40 section has signs

      Looks like English to me, certainly isn't a foreign language.

      So you were still speeding whichever section you were in.
      Hopefully the Dibble who spotted you doesn't read this forum as being unaware of your surroundings would probably be classed as driving with undue care and attention.
