In 2005, I was driving a rental car from London down the A303 after dark. Coming down the hill east of Amesbury, there was a big flash in my rear-view mirror. Whoops!

A few weeks later, back in Canada, I received a letter from Budget, with details of the fine for being 12 mph over the 70 mph limit. I tried to log on to the website to pay and had difficulties, due to my overseas details. I eventually managed to contact the appropriate department (in Salisbury, I think) and explained my predicament. I had a nice email back, saying they noticed I lived overseas and so they had cancelled the fine!

It still cost me though, because Budget charged a hefty admin fee on my credit card.
