Re: Baden/Wettingen (Schartenstrasse) "Verbot für Motorwagen"

hi, i got the same fine. 3 x 100, in 45mins time. We called police and they told us they cannot cancel any of the three.

so you really wrote them and they cancelled one fine? think we should try the same way.

thanks

Re: Baden/Wettingen (Schartenstrasse) "Verbot für Motorwagen"

You've started 3 threads on this pathetic subject. Is that supposed to one for each fine?

Maybe the internet is new to you, driving certainly seems to be...

That's similar story which happened to me several years ago in exact same spot. Partially due to me being a newbee to this area where we just moved in and partially by my sheer ignorance without realizing the rules at the first place. I was flashed several times on Schartenstrasse. It's a very profitable place which skins you alive!

What you need to do is take all the fines to police department in Baden (cannot remember the street name now but it's somewhere close by Pickwick's Pub). Explain and plead with them that you are new to this district and repeated the same mistake over and over again without even realizing it and that next time you'll pay attention and be more careful. Most likely they will ask you to write a registered letter addressed to local PD and hopefully they will reduce the amount of fines. They did reduce mine by count of two
That was many years ago and, for the record, we do not live there anymore.

That doesn’t mean they will cancel your fine as a rule. You need to be truly apologetic and not asshole about it. It’s all depends on local police’s mercy. Good luck with it anyone in similar circumstances!
