What happens if I get caught by a speed camera in Germany?

Im from France and have been in Germany for a few weeks, exploring areas and visiting long time friends. Last week I was roadtripping from Hamburg to Bremen and I was caught speed driving on camera. What will happen next? Im pretty unfamiliar´with the system here.

Hello happygirl88,


Since your question deals with speed driving in Germany, I have moved your post on the Germany forum1f609.svg


I hope you find some advice soon.


All the best,

@happygirl88 my opinoin is....waiting till you recieve any letter from department and let see what will they mention it.


In case you recieve a letter, you just need to pay for the charge of over speed driving.


All the best,

Sophal

@Yoginee thank you!

@romdoul  ive been told i should check out this website (https://www.punkte-flensburg.de/punktetabelle/) to kind of estimate what charge to expect but I hardly understand any of what's on there due to the language barriere


Any recommendations on websites for expats in germany for these specifically tricky situations?

@Aidan in HCMC alright thank you!!  i'll check it out later more in detail, but as far as I can tell, I'm not in risk of a driving ban 1f60a.svg

@happygirl88 honestly, i don't know any other website beside this expat.com. But i am quite sure that will be someone out from here, who has other recommendatoin to help you.


Good luck!
