    Another victory for CCMB.

    Congratulations on this and thanks for sharing your story. I didn't even think that cloning cars was a thing until this thread was created.

    Don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining.

    Yeah it's been enlightening and not to mention pretty scary. I hope, after all that hard work, that the outcome is as it should be and everything is cancelled.

    Fingers crossed on the 2nd ticket.

    Excellent news. Must be a massive relief

    Re: Speeding fine conundrum ?

    Yes it had been playing on my mind ever since I got the first ticket.
    The more I read about the problems with cloned registrations & the almost impossible task of winning in court should the Police decide to follow through with prosecution the more I was thinking that I would either have to take points for offences I hadn"t committed or risk a worse outcome in court.
    The forum I joined (pepipoo), as suggested by Jimmy the Jock, were very helpful & reckon that as I got a letter from the Safety Camera Unit dated 24 hours after they had received my letter that
    "The notice wouldn't have been cancelled without checks on the national ANPR systems which will have satisfied them that there are indeed 2 vehicles driving around with the same VRM (likely 2 hits at roughly the same time far enough apart in distance not to be the same one)"

    Really good news but still worrying the amount of time and cost you've incurred just to prove something you are innocent of. This could be any of us.

    Re: Speeding fine conundrum ?

    I am very relieved but at the end of the day even though I didn"t commit the offences I think that it is more luck than anything else that the Police have decided to cancel the prosecution.
    I have read about cases where the accused has had much more & stronger evidence than me that they were innocent & they have still lost their cases.

    Really pleased you had the correct result. I have been wondering whether to buy a dashcam, your dilemma has convinced me to go and get one tomorrow.

    How will a dash cam help in a situation like this?

    That's excellent news- a huge relief I'm sure

    Richy because with a decent one you can prove your GPS co ordinates as well as having an automatic timestamp so no more proof would be needed I imagine.

    There would be a problem if your car wasn't used at all during the offence time I admit but it would certainly be a help if you were out and about at the time.

    How could you prove you hadn't just put the dash cam in a different car?
