Any advice on the following would be much appreciated:
In July 2013 I travelled to Florence, Italy and hired a car. I drove through a lane restricted for buses. The second I drove over the "line" an Italian called out to me and signalled that I had gone through a "restricted zone". Straight away, I turned around and left. So I had crossed the "restricted zone" by about a metre. In any case, this was enough to get a fine.
I have now received the fine from the Florence police and they have fined me TWICE for this one offence. The two fines, sent separately, have different fine numbers but refer to the same offence at the same time at the same second!
Can anyone shed light as to why I've received TWO FINES for 123,51 euro? I thought it might have been one fine for entering and another for exiting, but then the times wouldn't be the same down to the same second.
I've thought about appealing it but if my appeal is unsuccessful, then the fine doubles!
