Speeding Ticket - Time Limit for Issuance

My wife got a speeding ticket in the post yesterday. It's nothing major but the date of the offence is August, so I wondered, if there was any sort of limit within which tickets have to be issued? In the UK, tickets have to be sent to the registered owner of the vehicle within 14 days. As this is over 2 months, I'm hopeful that something similar exists in Switzerland. We're in the canton of Geneva, if that matters at all.

Quite normal, I suspect the limit is 5 years, like for other bills.

It is 3+3 years for contraventions. 3 years to sentence you and than another 3 years to enforce the sentence.
Art.109 Swiss Criminal Code
