Traffic Ticket in Germany

Jump to last reply

Hi there,

Okay....we were in Germany in Oct 2010 and I received a 'fee' on my credit card for a rental from Avis. First of all, Avis wouldn't tell me what the fee was for....kept saying it was GPS which I had just paid with same credit card the statement before! Told them I wasn't paying twice for GPS. Finally after initiating a search from my credit card co. I find out that there is a traffic violation on the last day of the rental...convenient. This would have been enroute from Potsdam to Munich.

I have just spent 2 hrs going through the internet trying to find out what to do about this. If a photo of the 'offence' that I am unaware of as of yet, was sent to me, it went to the wrong address! The address on my driver's licence is not where i am currently living and so there is no way the information will be forwarded to me. There is also no way of looking at the website of the authority to find out any information. I have been provided with a reference number and the details of the authority:

Thuringer Polizeiverwallungsa
Zentrale Bussgeldstelle, D 06553 Artern

After spending a lot of time on this issuing authority's website, I am unable to find out any information.So I now have no way of obtaining the information on the traffic violation.

After reading the posts, I believe there is no point in paying the fine. However, I don't know the actual amount, the nature of the fine etc. Is there any way I can find this out? I don't want to provide the information to Avis as they will probably charge an additional 15 Euro to relay it. I would just ignore it as I am fairly sure there is no reciprical agreement between Germany and Canada but my husband will be heading to Germany for a conference next year and I don't want to be stopped at the airport and fined.

Help! What should I do at this point?

Thank you for reading this really long response
