    I’ve received a speeding fine in the post from the ruthlessly efficient Swiss Police. They got me on camera doing 83k in a 60k tunnel in a hire car a few weeks ago.

    I’m inclined to ignore it.

    What say yea?

    mudshark, got nothing to do with the banking system. if some w*nker comes over here, hires a car then refuses to pay the fees cos he went too fast (name like hot fiat it doesnt suprise..) its a bit sh*tty really.

    hot fiat, if you ever plan on coming here again pay up.. they will keep track and the fine goes up Chf 30.– ( at least ) every time they have to send a little reminder notice.

    That’ll be fun if you go there ski-ing sometime or need to go on business. They’ll stop you at the border, and it’ll cost more than just a speeding fine by then.

    I’d pay up. TBH there is an Italian scam going on which is fake, you shouldnt pay up but you could end up being extradited if you ignore it!!

    Mr Sparkle got one of them when we went to Swisslannd. I think he was desperate to get away from my riveting conversation so put his foot down big style.

    Anyway…i don’t think he paid it.

    I’m just wondering if the same awaits me in Belgium and Holland…mind you I was in a different car back then so should be ok πŸ™„

    Hmmm… I suspect that if it was a different country with a more laid back police force, say France or Spain, then most of the replies would have been “ignore it”. I can just see the Swiss locking the information away for the rest of eternity though and so the chequebook will have to come out.

    ha ha, duff got caught at last! there is a god πŸ™‚

    i hope they come and get you and make you live there as punishment you careless, naughty man.

    What rules do the Swiss have for proving who was driving. Just say you have no way of knowing who was behind the wheel at that time, they may not have a rule that auto penalises the name on the hire agreement. You might get lucky.

    In these situations my understanding is that if you don’t pay, the hire car company will do it on behalf and then charge the credit card they have on file, along with a hefty processing fee.

    If you can’t do the time, don’t commit the crime…

    As Flaperon said
    I’d be cancelling that card now if you intend avoiding the fine

    My mum was visiting my sister in Melbourne. My sister had enough points for speeding so kindly asked if she could tell my mum was driving her car. All ok. Mum went back home, and after about 3-4 weeks she got a speeding fine posted to her house in Poland all the way from Australia πŸ™‚ That’s efficency πŸ˜‰ Probably cost them more to find out my mums address than the fine itself. My sister paid it in the end but avoided the points.

    The thing with the hire company charging Your credit card might be right, as probably You are not the first person that got a speeding fine driving a hire car. I would probably pay it as well for peace of mind, after all You did brake the law by speeding… Maybe wait for a better exchange rate and then pay πŸ˜‰

    Mieszko I think you’ll find that’s perverting the course of justice and some time in the clink if you get caught … over here!!

    Just pay it,it’s only a fine, you won’t have points put on your licence.

    Hey Juan, that’s not fair, the French police are pretty laid back…when it’s between around 1230 and 1400 because you don’t see them – for some reason their cars are always parked outside restaurants. Wanna speed in France? Try around these times!

    And lister – is that really the case? If all I had to do to live in Switzerland was to get done for speeding then I’m going there right now to see what I can do.
