Problem is i need to make arequest for installments but, i have no clue where exactly to ask for that..

No, I mean, it's only 2k, just pay the whole sum to the Swiss using your credit card. Then you are done, the Swiss are off your back, no need to worry about missing a payment etc etc.


Pay the credit card off as and when you can.

And how to deal with the nice police officers. (Meek, compliant, apologetic and then bitch about it afterwards - or seek redress later when you're not in their power).

Most of us did not have to deal with the nice police man or guard as we call them in Ireland, never mind see the inside of the charge room.

Re: Student, caught by police biking drunk with thc

Ah, the bravery and arrogance of youth!!

By your own admission you did wrong, so accept the fine, pay and move on. If you appeal you'll likely lose and the costs (and possibly the fine) will go up.

And, never, ever, no matter the pressure, sign something you don't understand. You handed everything to them on a plate by doing so, The very worse is you spend the night in a cell and go before a judge the next morning, who'll probably give you a very small fine or at best a warning.

I'm pretty sure that anything you sign while three police officers are holding their truncheons over you, and after they refused to let you speak to a lawyer, has no value as you can legitimately claim you signed under duress.

Of course it helps if you recant at the earliest opportunity rather than waiting until it is opportune to do so.

Re: Student, caught by police biking drunk with thc

I agree with the others, just pay up (borrow money with credit card or whatever) and forget about it. Even if you manage to save 200 bucks it's barely 10% of the fine for a lot of effort and by appealing you only risk increasing the fees.
You can also consider yourself lucky, "normal" people get the luxury to lose their driving license if they don't go piss in cup for months and talk to a traffic psychologist easily spending 10k extra on that.

Re: Student, caught by police biking drunk with thc

For 2k you could have stayed at an all inclusive Hotel in Varadero Cuba on the beach open bar and drunk 24/7 driving a bicycle backwards no problem and for 5-7 days depending on the Hotel, heck for that money the flight would have also been included!

Next time, consider apologizing before the verdict. The remorse could have helped your case, but the judge who came up with the fine only had the arresting officers report. Had you sent a letter in as a follow-up describing your understanding of the mistake, perhaps the fine could have been a little less. However, these things are usually not so cheap.

It's good that you've moved on to the stage you're resolved to pay the fine. It is what is and you'll move forward in life. Just be prepared to be more humble with authority.
