Re: Got flashed speeding, what is the fine system?

View Post
I know there are lots of threads about this issue of speeding.

I'm an international student here in Switzerland and renting a car from the border (Geneva, French side).
A week ago, I was on my way to Geneva to get my macbook fixed as my project I was about to finish and due in 2 days..
I was driving on a highway A1 from Sierre - Montreaux - Lausanne - Geneva, I believed I got flashed once when the limit was 120 and I was going around 140-150 km/hr.

My friend just mentioned how strict they are here and I'm really worried
if my parents found out, I'm so dead
Any idea of when will I get the letter and how much it would cost?
Hopefully my international license won't be taken away...
In the 120 zones the fines are not that strict. The fine would likely be more than 150CHF but less than 250CHF. They will probably send the fine to the rental car company and then they would add in their processing fee and then send you the bill, or they will give your information to the police so they can send you the bill.

They won't do anything to your license.
