What is happening to our legal system when we are prosecuting people in May for offences from last summer? Accepting they are administrative traffic offences so not so important there is no reason why they could not be processed and appeared in court within three months of discovery. I notice two were proved in absence, not surprising with delays this long they might have died or emigrated!
