Thank you. It was my Son that rang and said Germany, it wasn't until he sent photos of the letter that I realised it was Austria..

Guess I'll just have to pay up and shut up..  :023: :001:

Possibly far less expensive than selling your bike to avoid paying :169:

A former colleague got debt collected from Germany 4 years after the fine date. He never disclosed what the ramp up was, however I suspect it wasn't cheap  :164:

 How would they have got your home address? Does the EU have access to vehicle owners details via the registration (number) plate across the whole of Europe?

This an interesting one - I've also apparently got a speeding fine from Austria, from 2017.  The only reason I know is because Avis billed me their admin fee a couple of weeks later, though I'm guessing they didn't give the Austrians my home address because the fine itself has never turned up, so I've never paid it.  If I had got it, I would've just gone ahead and paid it

I've been back to the EU since (though only UK & Ireland) but nobody said anything at the border, so I'm wondering if they'll ever front me with the bill.  I'm guessing that unless I make entry to the EU next time at an Austrian airport, or happen to get pulled over by the cops within Austria, I may not hear anything more about it? Anybody have any idea?

I asked this very question back in the 1980s. In those days, they would send the fine to the UK DVLA who would in turn, forward it on.

I'd image they do now have shared access to such data.

We (UK) signed a deal in May 2017 giving them (Europe) access to our details through DVLA

It seems there are companies that have set them selves up as collection agents and it can get messy and expensive.

Anywho.. I've paid, time, date and place are all correct and it wouldn't be out of the question that we were doing 112kph in a 100kph zone.

Bank details checked out when I was setting up the payment online.. Including costs for the IBAN and exchange rate it was 52.42  :015: cheap considering the fun we had over there, about the price for a day ticket to Alton Towers but no great long lines of people waiting for a fun ride..  :007: :164: :001:

But more importantly no points on your license  :007:

In future they'll simply send a collection drone to fly in, knock at your door and threaten dire penalities (in Sylvester Stallone's voice) unless you pay up ......  :001:

Austrian fines are a tad pricey eh.

I got a speeding fine from Germany last year for 69 in a 60 fined 10euro's, paid it by bank transfer thro my Barclays account, cost to me 9. Not worth fannying about with. I believe if you don't pay, they can sell it to a debt collection agency, then it could end up at silly cost.

Just home from a Euro tour myself, nowt come thro' yet but time yet, only been home 4 days. Loads of sneaky scameras not big & yellow like ours. And the fuel, by 'eck 1.77euro/L in Nederland's, like 1.70/L in real money! And we moan at 1.25/L in good ol' blighty. This is the best country in the world.
