Caught by a Speed Camera in a Rental Car???

Jump to last reply

We just returned from Norway. After spending 2 days in Oslo, we picked up a rental car in town and started out on our 6+ hour drive to Sognefjord. We had gotten out of Oslo center and were starting on the main roads where we thought the speed limit was either 70km or 80km. We were going approximately 75km when we drove by a speed camera in a gray box (first one we'd seen) which definitely flashed us. We then saw a sign ahead saying 60km.

We were extremely careful the rest of the trip and saw several more boxes. When we turned our rental car in at the end of the trip (9 days later) we thought the fine might be tacked on to the bill, but it wasn't. We even told the Hertz agent we thought we'd been flashed by a speed camera and she said they would simply pass on our address to the police if/when they were contacted. We made sure the address was correct and left.

We know that fines for speeding in Norway are outrageous...up to 10000 Krona and even jail or losing your license if the speed is high enough. We've accepted the fact we might get a huge ticket in the mail. My questions are:

1) Since the camera actually flashed, does that mean we definitely will get a ticket? I would assume most cameras are digital now and possibly pass on information immediately to the police?

2) How long should we expect it to take before receiving the ticket in the mail? Although I would love to not get this ticket, because we expect a very high amount I don't like it hanging over us. I'm worried about possible extra fines if they claim they can't find us since we are not in Norway (although we know Hertz had our proper address).

Anyone have experience with this?
