Oh Julie naughty.......I got sent a photo of my car ''allegedly'' speeding, along with a fine...I sent them a letter saying ''no thank you I already have a photo of my car'' they had a complete sense of humour failure!! Give someone a uniform and they all go power mad

My sister received a speeding fine but no photo, should they normally send out a photo with the fine then?

Ann, I think they have to send a photo as 'proof' She should challenge it if there isn't a photo I think.
