I traveled to Italy to study abroad 2 years ago and received a bus fine in the middle of my trip. I believe it was ATAF, the local city bus. I was confused on how to pay and got on expecting to pay there.
Once I realized there was nowhere to pay we were already off. The next stop a ticket agent came on to check out tickets and took me off the bus. They handed me a fine and told me to pay by a certain date. Upset of course, I tore it up and threw it away. I left Italy not thinking much of it but now I want to go back and I am unsure what would happen if I did. Would they detain me? Would I go to jail? Would they charge me 1,000 euros to enter and cover my fine? Just looking for answers, I am having a hard time finding much about this.
