Spain And France To Exchange Speeding Fines

More and more bilateral agreements are being made between European countries allowing them to exchange vehicle registration data. What this means is that if you get caught speeding on your motorcycle in one country, you will get the fine sent to your home in your home country. If there was no bilateral agreement, you would never see the fine.

Now on August 1st 2013, Spain and France will start their bilateral agreement. Speeding in one country? Then expect a fine at home within days. This for all types of radar fines such as speeding and red light radars.

Europe Fines Flag

In 2012, 450.000 Spanish vehicles were caught in France speeding, and 130,000 French registered vehicles were photographed in Spain, so you can see the financial advantages of such an agreement. A similar agreement is in effect between France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany and Switzerland.

On a side note, I do not know what the status is of recovering the fine in another country. You may receive the fine from the other European country, but they can not send a police officer to "get" your money. That is reserved for the national police, and I do not think they get to keep part of the "take", so I guess it is going to be rare that you will actually need to pay the fine.

Does anyone have more information about this issue? I have not been able to get any official to talk about it.
