I received a traffic speeding ticket the other day in the mail from Spain. We rented a car from Hertz at the airport in Madrid, terrible customer service by the way. I received an emailed from Hertz Spain about two weeks after we returned back to the states, stating they received a traffic notification and that my credit was going to be charged 40 Euro for the ticket. Then about a month and half later I received the ticket from Spain. I called Hertz Spain and the lady said the ticket was paid, so I asked for a copy of the invoice. The invoice clearly stated, The charges on this invoice cover the costs incurred in providing the driver or renter name and address to the relevant authority in Spain. I think this is corrupt, in the US the rental company pays the fine and then charges the renter. Now I have a ticket in Spain that I am unable to pay and I tried multiple avenues. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to solve this issue? This has really deterred me from traveling to Spain or even recommending anyone to travel there. I am really considering not paying it. Any help would be appreciated.
