    One of my colleagues was also issued a fine all the way from Italy and due to export controls it is almost impossible to pay it from here. We finally took some money with to Germany and paid the fine from there.
    Only the ANC will try to deny that e-tolls cost them a ton of votes in Gauteng...

    you never queried why the rental company chaged you 100 euro more?
    most fines get sent to the car hire places and they have the persons card on record and they charge the card - more than likely this has been done already - the actual fine/notice is your copy.

    does it say there the amount is still outstanding? I would follow this up with the car hire, they will have all your info on record still.

    Write the a letter in Afrikaans, letter must be registered, attach a 100$ (zim dollars) and apologise profusely and profess it wasn't you.

    I picked up a speeding fine in Zurich, I was doing 60 in a 50 zone, saw the camera flash in my mirror.

    Hertz passed my details on to the cops and charged an admin fee for doing so. Cops sent fine to my postal address. It stated that they did not provide copies of the infringement photos, but that they could be inspected in Zurich.

    I paid the fine. They have my Identity and Passport number, and European Cops are much more efficient than ours, and I would like to go back to Switzerland sometime.

    I was under the impression that it was for this "fine"
    But then I got another letter saying "you didn't respond to the first letter sir"

    Is the 10 Commandments for Christians?

    With reference to my e-mail about my alleged Italian traffic violation, I
    thought you and your readers might be interested to read this from the Italian Consulate. “According to the Italian Law, a fine to a person resident abroad must be notified within 1 year from the date of the traffic violation which caused the fine. Besides, it must be notified in that person’s language and must contain the indication of a mean of payment form abroad (for instance, the international coordinates, IBAN code, of a bank account where the fined person may pay the fine by international bank transfer). Since the fine you have received does not satisfy the last 2 conditions (it is in Italian and asks you to pay the fine with a postal order you may use only in Post Offices in Italy), I have the pleasure to inform you that you have not to pay anything.”
    From : http://www.honestjohn.co.uk/askhj/an...sulation-prize


    Honestly, it is better to pay up. You never know when you might need to go back to Italy - and chances are the cops'll be waiting for you should you ignore not to pay the fine...

    Call the Italian consulate and go from there, check legality, dates if the fine has been paid by the car company etc
