Letter requesting evidence in respect of a motoring offence (Guidance Notes)
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.
Letter to challenge a parking fine (Guidance Notes)
Use this letter when you are in receipt of a 'Penalty Charge Notice' for parking or other offences in England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland. This letter should be sent to your local council, or to the Parking Enforcement Processing Unit in Northern Ireland. It is not suitable for use where you were in a hire car or received a parking ticket for parking on private land. To get the most out of this letter, you should send it within 14 days of the alleged offence. If your challenge is rejected, you will still preserve the 50% discount on the fine for 14 days after receipt of the official notice of rejection.
Notice of appeal to a parking appeal tribunal (Guidance Notes)
If you have received a Notice of Rejection of Representations informing you that your appeal against a parking ticket has been unsuccessful, you can use this document in place of the Notice of Appeal form that accompanies the rejection letter. It allows you to make a final appeal to a parking appeal tribunal, giving details of one of the valid grounds under which you believe you have been incorrectly penalised. If this final appeal is rejected, you will have to pay the full amount of the fine.
Plea of mitigation in response to a speeding summon (Guidance Notes)
This letter can be used by a person who has received a summons to appear before a Magistrates' Court to answer a speeding charge. The letter informs the court that the person wishes to plead guilty by post in order to avoid having to attend at court on the date indicated in the summons. It also gives details of mitigating circumstances applicable to both the offence and the person, in order to seek to persuade the court to impose a more lenient sentence. Please note that this document can only be used in England & Wales.
