Traffic violations in France
If you receive a fine from the French Ministry of Economy and Finances, you may pay it through the secured website amendes.gouv.fr, choosing the English version.
All you need is the E-PAYMENT NUMBER that you’ll find on the back of the form you received and a credit card.
However, this online payment is only available within a fixed timeframe (usually 3 months after the offense). If you cannot pay the fine on time, it is always possible to send a personal check in $US to the Treasury address indicated on the form. You must convert the Euro amount to $US and write a letter explaining the reason why you could not pay on time.
