    Francis - pay up mate.

    I was done for speeding in a hire car, 2 years ago, had to pay Avis to pass my data on (as in, they took the money anyway) and the ticket can legally take up to a year to come through, which it did.

    They will enforce collection in the UK (Italy really does need the money) and as I expect you will return, you don't want your GT4 crushed...

    I expect the French are utter *******s too in getting their money out of the Rosbiffs.....best pay up OP.

    I do have 3 outstanding in Australia myself though....and as long as I don't get stopped by a car and have to present my licence (which I'd refuse to do) then I should be OK. They are very keen over there on speeding, though I suspect most people cause accidents by falling asleep on their endless, dull roads.

    Luckily I was in my daily driver - not the GT4 :-)

    Ouch; thatís a wee bit harsh.

    Unfortunately the world is a much smaller place these days. Long gone are the days of using different passports depending on what queue was shorter at immigration. THEY now know all!!!!
