The traffic authorities are reachable on the telephone number at the bottom of one of the traffic notice: 0034 902 508 686 I rang the Spanish traffic authority as soon as I got the email, as I was running out of time to save 30 Euro.

So I decided to go solo and find a way to the fine before the deadline.Also, I had to post a copy of the bank receipt to them (as instructed on the English version of the letter) And oh I must mention that – after receiving the very first letter, I contacted the car hire company in Spain to make sure if I really got the fine for speeding, and if they have supplied my details to the traffic authority.
