    It was awful, the aircon was just as bad, in the end we had all the windows open for 2 hours as we drove to Marseille.

    I got collared for a few driving offences in Perugia, Italy in a hired smart car (cant have been for speeding then?)
    Sixt were more than happy to pass on my details and charge me for the privilege !
    It was a year after the alleged offences I got a notification wanting quite a lot of money and if not paid within a certain time frame would then double.
    I could appeal but it had to be written in Italian??
    I googled and found out the timeframe for Italians at that time for being notified/prosecuted was 6 months.
    Italy has been fined by the EU many times for doing this so I chose to not pay.
    The uk timeframe for notification I believe is 2 weeks!
    Whatever the timeframe for notification for intended prosecution is for a country applies to visitors as well.

    I have triggered several speed cameras in Germany, nothing from them.

    We've had a ticket from Germany from a camera - in a hire car so they could trace us. Several years ago now. Didn't pay it (was all in German) but still get nervous when driving in Germany...

    Got caught once at a manned site but not stopped. I was in a hire car, but fortunately hired the car in Switzerland. Never had anything in the post.

    Maybe having a sense of humour would help?
    The point of the post is to warn others, the brexit thing was just a laugh!

    this all seems to be going from state into private collection so we can probably rely on capitalism to overcome border issues with state approvals and states benefiting with little or no outlay ... whats new ?
