Fine notification to foreigners

According to the Italian Highway Code, the police have up to 360 days after the date of the violation to notify the fine to foreigners. 
In the event of a rented car, the 360-day period starts when the rental company sends the lessee’s data to police authorities.

On behalf of the municipality of Bologna, the Multiservizi Srl company is responsible for the notification of fines abroad.

Rented cars in Italy

If you have rented a vehicle and the rental company has withdrawn money from your credit card, this concerns administrative fees in order to provide the Police Office with the personal data of the offender.
The municipality of Bologna is not responsible for those fees and the fact of paying them does not mean that you have paid the fine.
