A Hungarian car has been fined for three years for a car sold twenty years ago

A Telex the protagonist of his history received his first demand for payment in 2018 from the Dutch Central Enforcement Agency for driving his car quickly in the Netherlands. He had been selling the car for twenty years and knew he couldn’t be the speeder. Then he was surprised when the Hungarian police called him to pay.

In the end, it turned out that the speeding was not done with the BMW 324d, once owned by him, but certainly with the Lexus IS 300h in the fleet of the International Court of Justice in The Hague. The license plates of the two cars are the same: the same three letters and three numbers, but Lexus does not appear in the Dutch vehicle register, presumably because it enjoys diplomatic immunity.

The owner worked hard to get the fine canceled, but to no avail: he has been receiving the penalties continuously for three years and has to start the procedure from the beginning each time. He received a reply from the Netherlands that their system was so automatic that they would automatically send him the letter based on the license plate and did not even promise that it would not happen later.

At the same time, the owner also had a larger circle in Hungary. He contacted the ORFK, with which he indicated for each sentence that he would appeal against it as he did not belong to it. He was told to make an official statement that he had sold the car. With this, he had to apply to the government office to have the car officially removed from his name based on his announcement.

He eventually received a formal decision from the ORFK after all appeals and correspondence regarding the penalties: he is considered null and void, yet he does not have to pay them.
