    100 euros but no points? it could be worth paying it just to clear the stress, could prove a ball ache if you wanted to go back there otherwise.

    were you the only one allowed to drive the car? if not, how are you meant to remember who was driving

    There are quite a few interesting roads over here, i'm planning on going to Nockalm near Villach in Austria in summer (http://www.nockalmstrasse.at ), around 2000m altitude and great roads, mate went there with his 280HP alfa GTV but stacked it in the end, but made a good bumper cam vid of it though

    Not sure what route exactly you chose, but when we went to Klagenfurt after New Years with a couple of mates, there were some strange limits and road signs in and between the villages in the beginning of Austria, i remember where a village ended and we weren't sure if it's 80km/h or 40km/h limit, was a bit strange

    The thing that annoyed me is that I was keeping to the limits through the towns and villages, I honestly thought I had left the town here as there were no houses and no people about. Bastards.

    Personally I'd just pay it, it's not like they can even endorse your licence.

    Don't know what the fines are in Austria, but over if it's anything like over here, an extra 10kmh can really hurt, maybe even add a zero to the amount

    Watch the video in the first post, then tell me you wouldnt want to go back, for free.
