Ask an European Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Good day your question has been forwarded to me to see if I may be of assistance.
Do you dispute the fine?
Thank you for the addtioanl information.
There is nothing in law preventing the ticket being pursued a year after the ticket was incurred. They have opt to five years before it becomes barred from being pursued.
Additionally, they may sell, and often do sell the debt off to collection companies to pursue.
This however does not prohibit you challenging the legitimacy of the ticket and the amount that is being charged. There are two options available. You may opt to pay the debt and challenge it after. Alternatively, you may challenge the debt as this stage.
If you do opt to challenge the debt, I would not ignore the letter. I would write back, disputing the legitimacy of the debt and asking for them to provide a breakdown of the amount being charged and the reasons for this.
Kindly let me know if I may be of further assistance. Kindly take the time to rate the services received.
You are most welcome!
