Traffic Tickets - Why Should I Pay?

Jump to last reply

Almost daily it seems someone posts a complaint about some parking ticket they get weeks after their trip in the mail - for something they did wrong but did not even realize - thanks to the use now of many cameras in Europe at stoplights, speeding, etc.

And after the usual indignation of even getting the ticket the poster asks if it is OK just to ignore the ticket.

NO it is not OK - do the crime - pay the fine. Educate yourself about European travel rules in countries you are going to - like in Italy many towns have no go zones for private vehicles and cameras record plates and those in violation will later get tickets.

Many posts seem to think they were unfairly targeted, etc. No I do not believe any European country tries to do that - get a ticket pay the fine and quit carping about it.

Own up to your mistakes. quit being cfry babaies.

Well that's my take.
