French traffic tickets - can someone explain?

Jump to last reply

We recently rented a car in France through AutoEurope - a Hertz rental.

We have just received a notice from Hertz that says they are debiting our Visa 20 E for "administration costs". These arose in supplying our name and address to some traffic authority, in relation to a traffic violation.

On the date in question, we did use the car -- but we received no paper ticket nor were we stopped by any policeman.

Is anyone familiar with French ticketing practices? I've never heard of photo-radar in France.

And how should I deal with Hertz? I have written to say we are unaware of any infraction but I doubt that will do much......
