Letter requesting evidence in respect of a motoring offence

If you have received a Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) for speeding or passing a red light and the offence has been recorded by an electronic device (e.g. speed camera), you can use this document in two situations:

• To request information to help you identify the driver of the vehicle involved in the alleged offence so that you can respond to the NIP
• To request information to enable you to investigate, and if necessary take advice on, whether there is a defence to the charge based upon camera malfunction or unreliability, or upon some deficiency in the operation of a manual camera

Please note that there is no obligation upon the police to release photographic or other evidence, although many forces will do so. In some areas, technical information (e.g. the calibration of individual cameras) is published on the internet.
