What happens if you ignore an N.I.P? i suppose you get a summons but then what? Do you need a solicitor? Or do you not actually go up against the bench? Reason being i got flashed by a camera when i was on the way home from the hospital, where my Dad had just died. It was 2 am ish, a 3 lane carriageway and i was the only car on the road. the limit was 30 and i was doing 49. What would/should, I/You, do?
