As some of you may know 2 freinds and I recently spent 3 weeks touring Scandinavia, and I must say what an amazing part of the world, beautiful scenery, beautiful weather and beautiful people!
However, 2 freinds of mine that recently did a similar trip were not so lucky, they got caught speeding by an unmarked car and fined HUGE sum of money! The exchange rate means it is circa £850
They held their hands up and excepted what the officer said to them (who apparently was also a very nice chap!) and went on their way.
They are now home and have 'till mid next week to pay the fine!
Now although they except the fact that they were in the wrong and understand the punishment neither of them have that sum of money spare!
They have asked me to ask on here what might happen if they did not pay?
Now from experience being flashed on cameras in say France usually means you will hear nothing. Does anyone know if this is the case in Scandinavia i.e the fine will just get thrown out etc?
Are they likely to get asked to return to Norway?
Can they enforce the fine through the English embassy or is it likely they just will not be welcome back to Scandinavia?
Now I do not want to start a debate on how dangerous speeding is etc, they were in the wrong, they except that ( I personally would just pay it!)
but they would just like to 'weigh' up their options!
As always your help is much appreciated!
