A HARLOW driver who failed to respond to a speeding notice has been fined £1500.
The 52-year-old woman from Harlow failed to respond to a Notice of Intended Prosecution after the Volkswagen Tiguan for which she was listed as the registered keeper was caught on a safety camera.
The camera detected the vehicle travelling at 14 mph over the 40 mph speed limit on the B1393 High Road, Thornwood Common just after 7.20pm on April 24, 2015.
The woman failed to identify who was driving the car within the specified 28 day period or act on a reminder sent to her home address.
She appeared at Southend Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, May 17, 2016 and was ordered to pay a £1500 fine, £300 costs and £120 victim surcharge.
Adam Pipe, Casualty Reduction Manager, said: “I hope this sends out a clear warning to other drivers who find a Notice of Intended Prosecution come through their letterbox. Anyone who ignores the notice will face court proceedings and could find themselves left with a hefty fine and/or points on their driving licence.”
