I have learned my lesson the hard way about driving in Italy. Even though I knew beforehand that many others reported how difficult it is to avoid driving in restricted areas if you are unfamiliar with the area, I tried to be super careful. Unfortunately, I have received a ticket 7 months after I visited there. I paid it via wire transfer (as that was the only option available according to this particular police department). I considered it the cost of learning a lesson and went on.
Now several days later, I have received a 2nd ticket for a separate offense. This one stings a little bit more. It's not like I can easily pay these tickets without financial hardship, especially receiving them so close together. Others here in the USA have advised me to ignore it, but I am usually a very law-abiding citizen who wants to obey the law wherever I am. My question is...what happens if I don't pay it? Has anyone had experience with this situation?
Thanks very much!
