Traffic Tickets Across Borders

By Linda Tancs

As many international travelers know, vehicular traffic is controlled or limited in many areas.  Woe to the international driver who unwittingly enters a restricted zone.  In some countries, such as Italy, a traffic citation could appear in your mailbox as much as two years after your journey!  That’s because the 360-day notice period there doesn’t run until the car rental company notifies the police of the driver’s identity.  And that notification could take some time.  You can thank those roadside cameras for giving you up to the authorities.  So you better learn to read those signs (like “zona traffico limitato”).  Forewarned is forearmed.
