Does anyone have up-to-date info on what happens when you get a speeding fine in France? I have received the fine and would like to know, do they follow up? Does it affect your Swiss license? Do they stop you at the border if you have not paid it?. Thanks
Or, or, or you could choose to pay up. From recent experience I know that it is 45€ if you pay up within 30 days (extendable to 45 days under many circumstances). Plus they have a very convienient online payment system. In four languages, English included. So, one option would be to pay up and drive within the limit from the next time around. Just saying.
Thanks for your thoughts and info. I decided to pay up. Just so you know the minimum fine is now 90Euros. The on-line payment system is painless...more user friendly than any other I have even encountered! Yes, yes, I am a speed freak!
Next time I will be more careful.
Re: Alcohol test kit required for driving in France - From 1st July 2012
Work colleague was done for doing 202 on a french autoroute a few years ago. Large fine and banned from driving in France for a year. Original paperwork came to his swiss address, his wife then had to drive him any time he needed to cross the border for work; she's even worse at speeding than he is but has never been caught!
