Unpaid fine in Italy

Had to take a bus for 3 stops, in Milan, its basically impossible to buy tickets. Got fined. They saw my ID, EU one. I don't live in my home country and only visit Italy to see her family. I live in another EU country (Germany).

There's fuck all they can do, correct? I'm not paying 56€ for their broken public transport system. I used to work a student accommodation in Ireland and they couldn't chase a guy from Spain owing them 5k, with their ID and address, no way they can realistically pursue this

    You live in Germany.
    Do you think that there's anything Germans love more than to throw the book at a law-abiding foreigner?

      How on Earth Germany will know that? My national government thinks I live in UK as that is my declared address officially.

        To verify, I hadn't given them any address.

        Then I guess you're off the hook.
        I would still pay the first time a correctly addressed invoice shows up somewhere near you, 56 bucks is a small price to pay to keep it from escalating.

          Nah, fuck them. You can only buy them in metro, kiosks or by text if you got an Italian number. Most places you'd go without metro have neither of those, my stop included. Plus fuck the Italian government. I'm just curious what's the most someone has been fined and how was their experience. In my home country I already owe 400€, was ordered thru court to pay it, but I have never had any issues with it.

            According to my gf these lazy cunts don't even do anything but drink coffee or smoke cigarettes 90% of time and never catch proper fare dodgers who can see them from a mile. Only reason they got me is because I got shitloads of luggage on me. Between their cucked mask laws and inefficient government, they can eat shit.

    I used to work in fare collection in a Central European country.
    If you were caught without a valid ticket and we didn't have you in our customer or fare dodger database the fare inspectors were instructed to get some valid ID from you, in the worst case by calling the police.
    If we couldn't find a domestic residential address of you we would give up on collecting the fine but keep you in the fare dodger database for 7 years, in case we would catch you again.
    Repeat offenders and fraudsters would be handed over to the police.

    TL;DR: don't sweat it

        First fine was 70 bucks, the second one 100 and a third strike in two years would get you in criminal court.
        For people unable to manage their lives we had their caretakers buy monthly and yearly passes in advance and then we put their names into the database so that inspectors wouldn't repeatedly fine them.

        I'm surprised europeans don't take advantage of this more. Like go to Spain and then refuse to pay your bill and go home. WTF they gonna do? But it seems like only eastern europeans behave that way.

        Tourists can abuse the system in many ways that locals can't but locals can exploit it with inside knowledge.
