Ok now i was in France the previous weekend and was running late to make it for the euro tunnel back. So i stepped on the accelerator and drove above the speed limit. WAZE didnt show me any speed cameras so i didnt bother to check the road signs.

Now i believe i have gone past a number of speed cams above the limit.

I am worried of what to do if i receive fines at home.

What will happen if i dont pay it??

Not proud of speeding but i did commit the stupid act. :(

  • UK license in France?!! Forget about it. Either you never receive a ticket in mail or if received it arrives as registered mail: you just refuse to accept the registered mail from French traffic offices.

  • I don't know why the UK should be different, I got a French speeding ticket sent to my German home address for being 1 km/h above the limit....

    Ive just received 2 speeding fines in 2 weeks - one was from last October and one from January. Both in ordinary post to my UK address. They are obviously working through the backlog. Apr 18, 2019 at 12:13
  • Note that the speed camera option in WAZE is illegal in France. The fine is 1500 euro's, which is higher than all speeding tickets!

According to the AA, if you believe you have committed the offence you should pay the fine or face the real possibility of being chased for a much-increased penalty charge and probable travel difficulties in France in future. https://www.theaa.com/european-breakdown-cover/driving-in-europe/driving-offence-abroad
