I was caught speeding in Switzerland in July, had a form asking for the drivers details to my name & address (registered keeper) come through in November. I filled this in and a fine has been produced, arriving 27th Dec (happy Christmas!). The first letter had German and English, but the second letter only has German, so I've no idea what it says! Apart from the fine is fairly obvious (has a big TOTAL mark)

It's for 136kph in an 80kph, which is then reduced to 130kph due to adjustments. Fine is 2700CHF, approx £2050. No salary was given etc.

What are my options? TIA

Right, but I've already said I want to pay. I broke the law, so I should pay. I also would like to visit Switzerland again, and who knows in the future what else it could limit me from.

The fine is the fine, how do you know they discount them? Clearly if you've got one and not paid, you'd not be going back. I have asked for a discount due to affordability but they are having none of it.

My concern is not the money, I've written it off now. My concern is what I maybe agreeing to by making a payment.



Going back over all the posts the original amount mentioned was "discounted" in that the CHF6000 is in abeyance if the fine and fee are paid. It seems odd that you have now been offered the chance to challenge at this late stage as that point appeared to have passed last year when you failed to respond.

You have been honest, admitted the offence and are willing to pay so why not do it? It's doubtful the Swiss will not be following correct procedures for the paperwork. Requiring correspondence to be in English seems to be counterproductive because, if you really need it, any translation app will provide that if you do not want to pay for a professional translation service.

Oh, I have no reservations about paying it. I got done, so it's only fair. Had I know quite how much they'd be if I was caught speeding, I probably would have stuck to the speed limit religiously, I suppose that's what they want!

You make sense though, I will just process it through a translator to just ensure I'm not admitting I like sodomy or something random!
