Agreed. I go as far as my Dutch permits which is not very far. :-)

comment Money and Cards in the US
In three of those instances, the bank called me about irregular transactions. I simply had to refuse the transactions over the phone. In one instance, my card was used to withdraw cash at an ATM right after I did. All in all, I feel that it was a minor annoyance easily handled.

comment What are police procedures in France when the victim is a traveler?
What about contacting her embassy in France and ask for advice? For example, the UK government is providing a brochure on this topic.

comment fighting US driving ticket from abroad
When is she due to appear in court? Honestly, I would not want to mess with court in a foreign country, regardless of the country. I would pay and swallow my pride.

@AleksG I would not recommend ignoring the ticket. In the USA, a warrant can be issued for an unpaid traffic violation and this could mean jail (see this question).

comment What happens when a foreigner gets a traffic fine in the United States?
Tried to improve the answer. Bottom line, it varies by state. If you give us the state, we can further answer.
