Dear Sirs

In connection with the following Speeding Offence matter, I am unclear as to what the final decision is of Kent Police - please refer Running Commentary on Legal proceedings: 11.18 am (UK-Time) 9 November 2022 (



If it is the Fine that Kent Police is imposing, kindly let me know how much extra I need to pay over and above the £92 that I have paid for the Speed Awareness Course, and how many points I already have on my driving licence from the 2017 Speeding Offence if it has not already elapsed with the passage of time, so that I can do what is necessary.

I wish to put all of this behind me.

Thank you

Yours sincerely

Dr Shantanu Panigrahi
