Speeding fine from France

Hi all! I've got a bit of a funny situation;

I drove from the UK to Switzerland through France 10 months ago with my UK registered car (I used to live in the UK and now I live in Switzerland, for the last 10months).

I rented my place in the UK and engaged with a neighbour to collect my posts on my behalf. However, that person somehow forgot to send me/inform me about a very important letter from France, a speeding fine!

Since I had to no idea about the letter and it was not paid, they seem to have increased the fine from ..EUR (unknown) to 200 EUR.

My question is, what should I do? Options I can think of:
1- Call the French authorities and explain the situation and hope they will be understanding!
2- Ignore the fine since I dont intend to visit France in my lifetime (I dont have any reason to go there, not my favourite county after this hehe!)
3- ?
