Presumably anything they send will go to the address linked to your car registration.
This is what has happened to me when I have been careless in Germany as well as in France and been caught by the cameras.
Count yourself lucky you were not marched off to a cash point then abandoned. Take it easy and watch for speed signs. Maybe you were let off on this occasion. Dont let it spoil your holiday worrying what may or may not happen.
Says the man who completed his speed awareness course this morning
He will have your registration number. However I don’t think the reciprocal agreement has been signed yet so you are unlikely to be chased up. You apologising might have helped avoid an on the spot fine.
More than 40kmph over the speed limit for a driver on French plates results in being banned for a few days while they issue paperwork. And then more serious fines to follow.
Years ago we were pulled over and issued with an on the spot fine. To this day I am convinced we were not speeding and, as the gendarme in question waved through several French cars who had definitely been doing the same speed as we were, I am also completely convinced we were targeted because we were Brits (or at least, not French).
In Emilie’s case, the fine arrived at the hire company a couple of weeks after she had returned the car and had the deposit returned. It goes to head office and it’s then sent on to the actual agency before they then write to the hirer. The only speedy part of the process was driving past the camera
