    Were you actually driving in a restricted zone?

    Who knows, Florence is a nightmare to drive in, a lot of the the signs are incomprehensible, and this was six months ago.

    i haven't read Jim's reply yet but i think i know what it is....

    hope your son doesn't visit often and never gets stopped while there...he'll get a nasty shock.

    edit...just read it (Jim's)and it wasn't what i thought....

    i believe they have the power to issue tickets to foreigners after they have left the country and do follow them up...if your son gets stopped in Spain in the same vehicle he may well have the outstanding fine to pay as well as any others,
