Dear BTST Member,
I’m pleased to announce the impending launch of the new 2019 Template Speeding Letters.
They’re designed to get “smart motorway” speeding tickets cancelled where there is doubt about who the driver was (although they can be used for all types of speeding tickets).
The 2018 template speeding letters worked 4 times in a row for our test subject (me!) to get four different “smart motorway” speeding tickets cancelled.
However, on the 5th occasion (in February 2019) the Police dug in their heels and decided to take the case to Court.
I believe this was because we’d — quite legitimately — used the exact same letters 5 times in a row for the same driver (and same Police force) and they were probably starting to get annoyed with me!
I was represented by the Lawyers we contract with to represent DriveProtect Members, and got a very favourable result (I wrote an article about it at the time which I’ll link in the “P.S.” below in case you’re interested in what happened…).
It was a good thing that the Police decided to dig their heels in because it exposed a “reverse loophole” in the 2018 letters.
What on earth is a “reverse loophole”?
The Police don’t have to actually prove you were driving. Rather, they have to demonstrate that you were most likely to have been driving at the time of the alleged offence.
The Police must want to prosecute you in order for you to end up in Court, and they likely will if one of these situations apply:
1- Your speed was significantly above the speed limit;
2- They feel you are trying to abuse/game the system, which I believe was the case on the 5th time fail mentioned above;
3- The Officer reviewing your case is particularly militant, or has woken up on the wrong side of the bed!;
4- They believe they have a good chance of winning.
The “reverse loophole” in the previous version of the Template Letters gave the Police a much better chance of winning at Court if they decided to pursue it — as they did with me on the 5th time of using them in February 2019.
Now that we know about it, we’ve “patched” the letters, to drastically reduce their chance of winning (and so logically, reduce the likelihood that they will decide to pursue to Court).
More info when we launch — hopefully on Thursday, all being well.
Available to BTST Members Only
As was the case last year, there will be 500 copies available to BTST Members only and we will NOT make these Template Letters publicly available either now or at any time in the future.
I’ll let you know as soon as the site is ready and the letters are good to go live — we’re targeting Thursday 25th July :- )
All the best,
P.S. A quick note about TALEX 3…
We’re currently developing the brand new TALEX 3, which is getting pretty close to completion.
Here’s a picture of the latest prototype being tested:
As we don’t have a current TALEX model (so no product sales to finance the development of TALEX 3), the proceeds from the 2019 Template Letters will all be allocated to the final stage development costs of TALEX 3.
