How much is the fine ?

Yes your brother can get away with it if he didnt give them any details other than his driving licence and insurance no, the court takes months and the system is a joke, a simple traffic fine on a footbath is nothing.

You hav other option which is just pay it and get on with it, the fine is probably less than 50 euro if not even less than 30 as i recall getting fines for parking on a bank pavement and got fines 25 euros???

Then maybe it would be polite if you offered to pay the fine. :)

(Unless he's older, of course. Greek custom: eldest pays.)

He took the hire car back and hes jetted off!

Get this... they wanted him to return it with a full tank of fuel which he was ok with, but because he was running late to catch his flight he offered them cash to save him the trip to the fuel station.

They wanted 60 Euro to fill a tank that only needs 40 euro to fill....

Hmmmm :-?

I think 20 Euros to pay extra for the time it takes to drive it to a garage, queue, fill up and bring back is not very much to ask. They are a business after all - and since your brother did not have time, you cannot expect them to just give up their time for free.

Kankouros, A Jew and a Scotsman once had a bet about who could remain submerged in a swimming pool longest, they both dived in and both drowned.

For God's sake Man, pay the fine and have done with it, the law was broken, it would appear that your poor 'Heart' may be next in line. :wink:

Must tell you about one of many run-ins with local councils here in London where it was alleged that the "law was broken" ...

Some months ago got a parking ticket for allegedly contravening parking restrictions up near our local high street somewhere here in London..

This ticket was appealed and contested all the way to the independent from local councils Parking Adjudicator, with loads of photos, drawings of parking bays with measurements .. all referring back to government regulations regarding such things as the required standards of signage and markings cos unless the parking enforcers have complied with every single letter of the regulations (and soooo, soooooo many don't here in London), their alleged parking restrictions are worth nothing. The local council had made a pig's ass of its signage and markings in this case.

In the end, to cut a long story short, the local council, which had failed in its duty to put up regulation-compliant signage and to maintain the parking bay as the regulations required, gave up the case and cancelled the alleged contravention ticket, citing "lack of resources" to further contesting the matter.

Moral of the story...??? It ain't up to local councils or other parking enforcers to decide whether "laws have been broken", only the courts do that. ... oh and never pay the bar stewards 'til you have exhausted all remedies after ref to the regulations.

Score so far... Local Council 1 Bill C 3 ... :D
