Historical speeding fines in France
Well! I’ve just received a speeding fine from a France, three months after the alleged offence! The heinous crime? 3kms over the local speed limit in the middle of nowhere, outside Avignon! If I pay up promptly, it’ll cost £41.00!
This was the day we were being kicked out of France due to their early lock down procedures and the urgent need to get the last ferry out of France!
Apparently the French authorities are using historical UK driver speeding offences to boost their income because DVLA currently have a reciprocal agreement with France to name/shame uk drivers in these circumstances. This agreement is unlikely to continue after Brexit so the French authorities are milking the cash cow whilst the sun shines and the going is good!
Be warned people and there is very little to appeal against!
