Spain traffic tickets

Jump to last reply

got a notice from Hertz for 40 euros for a traffic violation on a date when we were driving in Spain (notice unclear as to exact city (we were in 2 that day) or specific violation)
I am assuming there are cameras in old cities like Granada where it is impossible for tourists to avoid disobeying traffic laws due to serpentine maze of alleys and streets
called Hertz they were helpful - paid the 40 euros which is only the fee to Hertz for the difficult admin task of giving my address to the policia.
I am thinking it was for driving on a 1 way, or parking in a restricted area....hoping its not too high of a fine.
I paid the Hertz part because I use them a lot in the US...wondering if i should pay the spanish govt fine when i comes in or what happens if I ignore from the US..I don't like to have outstanding debts but this borders on entrapment, any opinions?
