Traffic ticket

Jump to last reply

Despite my slow driving in France, attempting to adhere to every speed limit sign (and hence incurring honks, bird-flips, scowls, etc from trailing drivers), upon our return to the USA we found a speeding ticket in the pile of mail awaiting us.

What a model of efficiency!! Infraction occured on the 17th, they check with the rental company, mail the ticket on the 21st. If only everything else were that efficient. Like, couldn't they print the form in English so I wouldn't have to guess at its meaning?

106 km in a 90 km zone. 45 euros = ~ $60 If it was where I think it was, the camera was just inside the 90 km sign, at a point where I belatedly had jammed on the brakes to slow down to 90, but apparently too belatedly.

I could just ignore it, but the future ramifications might dictate otherwise.
