Need help understanding a German speeding ticket!!

Jump to last reply

On Saturday we received a letter from Avis rental stating that our car was charged a traffic violation while in Germany this past May. The German notice form with explanation came today.

The best we can tell, as it's completely in German without an English translation, is that at some point my husband was driving 56 km in a 50 km zone.

Thankfully, the fine is only 15 euros but I can't tell on the form if it must be paid by a certain time, if I can pay by credit card or if it's OK to pay by cash. I don't want to go to the expense of a bank check in euros or a bank transfer if we can avoid that.

Is there an online website that might give a translation from German to English? I've used babelfish in the past. My Berlitz German phrase book and dictionary isn't very helpful for this form ;;)

I'm hoping someone "familiar" enough with speeding tickets in Germany can help us.

Thanks, Deborah
