When you are cruising down the road in your Everything Fleet rental car, the last thing you want is to be pulled over by the police for speeding. Maybe you were in a hurry or maybe you weren’t paying attention to the speed limit. No matter how it happened, you were busted and now you have to deal with a speeding ticket. But you are in an Everything Fleet car, so what do you do? Your options for dealing with a speeding ticket are pretty much the same in an Everything Fleet car as in your own car; you either contest it or pay up. Nevertheless, there are some factors you should be aware of if you find yourself in this situation.
How was the ticket issued?
The process for paying a speeding ticket will depend on if you received it in person from a police officer or if the ticket was issued by an automatic traffic camera. If you received a ticket from a police officer personally, you may be able to pay it straight away and the Everything Fleet team won’t be involved at all. However, if you were caught on camera, the ticket will be sent to Everything Fleet. This is because traffic cameras identify cars by their license plates, thus they automatically mail the ticket to the owner of the car. In this case, Everything Fleet checks who was renting the car at the time of the ticket and passes on the renter’s details to the appropriate authorities. The same type of process plays out if you’re caught running a red light by an automated camera or if your issued with a parking infringement. There will be administrative fees associated with such violations, charged by Everything Fleet, in addition to the ticket amounts themselves.
Traffic violations are common and being proactive is the best way to deal with them or avoid them altogether. When renting an Everything Fleet car always check the Terms and Conditions or chat to our team about the administration fees and processes involved before heading off.
