Traffic ticket in Brittany

Jump to last reply

About 3 weeks after our recent trip to France, we received a notice from Eurocar
that a 25 Euro charge had been placed on our credit card to cover a traffic violation.
How common is this? Can any Fodorites shed light on a ticket issued to us without our
knowledge?

On the day of the alleged offense, we drove from Dinan to the English Channel Coast,
parked in a large public lot and followed the pink granite trail for a couple hours and
then returned to Dinan. Our hotel there gave us a reserved space. A friend tried to translate the notice for us and thinks that our violation had to do with parking but
given our activities that particular day, I don't see how. Our friend said that she
and her husband often receive such notices when travelling in Europe and just write
them off as part of the cost of the trip. Enlightenment on this subject would be appreciated.
