Friend received a car parking ticket whilst driving my car, leaving to the UK soon?

Good evening folks,

New poster but long time reader, I'm in search for your advise and looking for an answer on the title comment which I can't find anywhere searching on this forum.

My friend has recently been visiting me here in Geneva and upon one of his daily drives using my CH car he received a parking ticket, the parking ticket was picking my young relative up from school which was extremely sad because he only had gone in to see if they where finished the home work, no longer than 10-15minutes (I think).

Now, the two choices are to pay straight up at la poste or send it to his address back in the UK as it has "Formulaire d'identite' located on the back of the parking ticket.

My question is if I sent it back to his UK address would they pursue it or would he get away with it (as I've read on here, EU are in current deals to chase the tickets up) or should I just pay?

Cheers

Got a ticket?

Pay the ticket.

End of story.

And no problem to deal with later.

Just pay the ticket - the car was parked illegally not your friend. You are the owner of the car and responsible for where it is parked. Just get your friend to repay you.

Any other route will be more painful in the long run!
