Apparently, In Italy…

You can run but you can’t hide. 
 
We received a strange letter in the mail today.  It was postmarked  Padova, Italy!  Upon  further scrutiny it turned out be a traffic ticket from Italy!!  From TWO years ago!!!!!!  Apparently they (Anthony was driving) blew through a toll road and were filmed.  Now in their defense, it was their first time there, they were tired from the long flight and it was at night!  But seriously, they broke the law and should be glad they didn’t spend the night in an Italian jail!!  Or a year or two!!  Hey!!  The law is the law!!  Right?  hehehehe!
 
But really!!  It took two years??  I guess those Italians are VERY laid back!! 
 
So I went on their website ( a strange place) and paid the ticket, which as 29 EUROS or about $60 U.S. 
 
The whole thing amazed me.  But I’m just glad that Mrs Serious won’t be doing ‘hard time’ in Italy! 
 
I did advise her that the fried bologna is OK but stay away from the red sauce!!   Just in case!
 
I’m sure that Mrs Serious will be adding her 2 cents to this in a comment and that it will be my fault in the end!  But that’s just us!! 
 
So if any of you visit Italy, drive carefully, obey the laws and PLEASE avoid the red sauce!!!!!!  Trust me!
 
I promise to respond to my ‘tag’ tomorrow.

    um……………………..
    okay………………..
    they must be to laid back……………. two years for one ticket?
    is this even YOUR ticket?

    And what, exactly, were they going to do to Mrs. Serious if you DIDN’T pay the ticket?  Send someone over here to force red sauce on her?
    Seriously, though, can they enforce something like that?   

  3. Jane says:

    Well, that makes sense if she wants to go back there some time.  Personally, I think you should do all your sightseeing and commit all your crimes in one trip, then you don’t have to worry about being arrested upon re-entry.

    As I used to like to say, "Let’s go to trial!"

     That’s just wild! Maybe they wait a while to see if you re-enter the country and they can get you that way!! Well, glad you paid Becky out of jail time!!lol
    hugs,

    Hey if Sophia Loren can do jail time there, then I know Becky could handle those "jail house bitches" lol
    I wouldn’t tell Anthony. He might like the idea too much! lol BIG HUGS, Steph
