notice of intended prosecution

A written notice issued to someone charged with any of certain specified driving offences stating that he will be prosecuted. These offences are: *speeding, *reckless driving, *careless or *inconsiderate driving, *ignoring traffic signals, and leaving a car in a dangerous position (see *obstruction). If the offender was not warned when he committed the offence that he might be prosecuted for it, he cannot normally be subsequently prosecuted unless he is served with either a summons or a notice of intended prosecution within 14 days of committing the offence. If he is prosecuted nonetheless, he may appeal against his conviction. If the notice was posted by registered or recorded mail so that it would normally have arrived within the 14 days, the motorist cannot plead that he did not receive it within that time.
