Re: Second driver in a rented car exceeded speed A LOT, but I got the ticket- what to

I did understand it, I just find the intentional protection of the guilty driver to be morally disgusting. They are purposefully not revealing her license number to me. buggers.

we've had all the traditional excuses in this thread except for "I didn't understand the contract because it was all in German/French/Italian"
I am wondering whether her massive mammaries prevented her reading the speedometer.

Re: Second driver in a rented car exceeded speed A LOT, but I got the ticket- what to

Just to avoid you having another shocker: in Switzerland, the vehicle owner is ultimately responsible for traffic fines acquired with that vehicle. This means, if you lend your car to GirlWithLusciousBoobies V2, and she gets flashed doing 70 in a 50 zone in Wankdorf, you either have to give her details to the police, and if you can't (or they can't find her), you will have to pay the fine.

You can complain to nine hells that this is unfair, but alas it is the law here too. You have every right not to identify the culprit (or give bogus identities), but if the police cannot find that person, they will extract the fine from you.

Lesson learned: resist the temptation of temperamental boobies. They are not good for your mental health or your driving record (and in most cases your wallet suffers too).

Ninja edit: Sixt probably has some customer data protection rules that they have to comply with. Again, from your perspective this is unfair, from their perspective, you are some random guy who wants to have confidential data about one of their customers. They might be sympathetic to your specific case, but if then they get sued by GirlWithLusciousBoobies V1 because they handed over her details to unauthorized persons, they will be in a world of hurt.

Ok I don't care. I'm just going to do my best so provide the details I have, pay the fee and wait. if they charge me extra f... them but I won't make false confessions especially after already once telling them that she was the one driving. That 'd be idiotic.

But I can't stomach that Sixt can just like this refuse to provide either me or the police with her license number. So sick.

Nah, I think I will not post the picture unless you want to confess to have been driving that car ;d
Sixt has fulfilled its obligation - name the renter which is you.

The Italian police will see this as being given the runaround.

Sixt cannot release the personal data to you. The only thing they can give is the renter's details to the police.

If you're no longer in touch with Dolly then there are few options left.

You don't strike me as marriage material either btw.

Pay the fine. Bill your friend. If she doesn't pay, give her three reminders followed by a Betreibung. Job done.

Re: Second driver in a rented car exceeded speed A LOT, but I got the ticket- what to

I don't see why this is turning out so complicated. You weren't driving. You write a registered letter to the police and tell them that, along with the name and address (and phone?) of the person that was driving. Supply a copy of the contract showing she was an authorized driver. You shouldn't have to pay (yet) unless she's just vanished.

Another option, if you don't feel like doing that:
- Request photo evidence, to verify it was actually the car you were in, and that she was driving
- Pay the bill but be sure to get a receipt showing you're the one that paid
- File a Betreibung against her if she won't respond to your calls or emails

Next time, make sure you have a copy of the contract with the full details of both persons. And follow xynth's advice about being wary of lusciousboobies.

Re: Second driver in a rented car exceeded speed A LOT, but I got the ticket- what to

indeed I can confirm the following from the experience of a colleague recently:
- the Italians will fine you
- they will want to give you points
- if they give you points, they will report this to the Swiss authorities
- the Swiss authorities may also take steps against you if you were in their "naughty" region

That's from someone who paid the fine and the penalty point charge as he did not name himself

So if the OP ends up paying, his Ex owes him both amounts.

I wonder at what point this will go back to Sixt.....
