I just received a traffic ticket from our Italy trip (3 mos. ago)

Jump to last reply

This week, in the mail, I received a Notice of Payment before notification from Polizia Locale di Varenna.

It indicates our rental car was "parked inside built-up area, in a forbidden zone according to by-laws".

I don't know if this is true, b/c I don't recall (obviously) what any signs might have said. We stayed at the Villa Cipressi, and we were told by their front desk staff to find a parking spot along the side of the road, which we did.

Nothing was left on our car - but perhaps that it not the protocol for traffic tickets in Italy?

Is it typical to receive notice like this via the mail and not on the car - and this much later?
