The driver has just received a letter from a solicitor regarding a traffic violation in Italy four years ago.

 

All the information provided seems correct, i.e dates, type of car name and address of driver.

 

At first we thought it was a [problem], this is now looking less likely but still possible. What is the best course of action?

 

The requested amount is €300 from waters&gate

I don't have much of an answer, but I do know that Italy only have 360 days after receiving identification of the driver to notify foreign drivers of the fine.

 

As they would have only had access to the DVLA records from 2017, they should only have been able to request your details within 12 months of the offence. I'd be inclined to think they're out of time...

 

Hopefully someone will be able to give you more help on this one as I may be completely wrong.


:)I am not an expert, but I can give good advice about Brighthouse:)

 

Am learning more and more about DCA's too :)

 

I have no legal experience and all advice given is based on the knowledge I've gained from this site.

It always astonishes me how long it takes the Italian authorities to issue traffic fines. In your case, it was 16 months after the offence. According to the Italian Traffic Code, the police have only 360 days after receiving identification of the driver of the vehicle (that is, the date that Hertz handed over your UK address) within which to notify foreign drivers of the fine. This information is provided on the website of European Municipality Outsourcing (EMO)

It's probably also worth mentioning that the vehicle was a hire car - the hire car company had a copy of the drivers licence which obviously includes name address etc.
