Speeding in Luxembourg, anyone got any experience?

Post by Scott_rider » Fri Sep 07, 2018 5:13 pm

I've been nicked for speeding on the bike in Luxembourg :( . It's a 50 euro fine and the Luxembourg Police have written to me in the UK. I've been onto their website and it's all genuine rather than a con. However under their law they don't send a copy of the picture taken at the time of the offence. If you want to query it, or look at it, you have to visit their office in Luxembourg :shock: , which is a bit of a ball ache for 50 euros.

Anyway, does anyone have any experience of this...what I'm getting at is the consequences of not paying it :oops:

(I know I shouldn't have been speeding :oops: )

Do you ever intend on returning to Luxembourg??

If they've got your address I would probably just pay it.You know you were in the wrong and it's not as if you're getting points on your licence.If it was your annual holiday it's an extra 1€ a week so I would just suck it up,it's not worth stressing about.

I ended up with two fines from Spain.
Speeding in my little Citroen C1. Same day, same stretch of road.
I did see one Camara flash.....

Anyway, as has said above, if they’ve sent a fine notification to your home address then pay up.

I did, I’ve not heard anymore. And after all, I was guilty. :roll:

If you really want to see the picture, email them and ask them to send you a hard copy.

I didn't think Luxembourg was big enough to speed in...

I'm sure I read on here, many moons ago, a post by an experienced lawyer type chap about the debt being passed on to a UK collection agency if it's not paid.
A quick google comes up with this
