Re: Caught driving in a neighbours only restricted area

Yes, I have first-hand experience of this. My wife's car was reported as being in a restricted area in Bern a few years back. Except it wasn't, but yes, a private individual had (incorrectly) noted the number plates and reported it to police, who then passed it on to the police in the village where we were resident, who then asked me to come in for an interview.

All without checking the vehicle description, which, IIRC, was of a red Toyota hatchback, as opposed to the white Audi TT convertible to which the plates were attached.

I was also able to show that we were both a couple of hundred km away, teaching skiing with the local ski school.

No idea what the fine would have been, as it was clearly a case of mistaken identity so the case was dropped.
This sucks! Glad you were able to prove you were a couple of hundred km away.
