I don't have any traffic violations on my record, through I ran a speed camera in my grandpa's car once when I was picking him up from the hospital so he received the letter and was kind enough to pay for it. Another time I ran a speed camera in my dad's company car so if anything the company has received the letter. And another time I ran a speed camera in my dad's car but we never received a letter. None of these wouldn've gone on anyone's record either way because the violations were minor enough to only warrant fines, no violation points.
Also sometimes I run traffic lights that are just turning red in my region. When you jump through a light just as it's turning red we call it "dark orange" in Germany. Never got caught so far, I know there's no traffic light with a camera in my town and I'm more careful elsewhere.
Also one time someone crashed into me in a parking lot while I was momentarily driving on the wrong side to take a wide turn into a parking space but I was able to talk myself out of it without getting the police or insurance involved. The other person had to repaint their entire bumper, the scratch on my car was almost invisible (based Volvo).
>>53279288 If you think that's bad, imagine that you don't even need personnel to run speed cameras in Germany. Permanent cameras are autonomous anyway, and camera vans are just parked at the side of the road and make photos automatically, and then they electronically process them and send you the fine in the mail, no pulling over involved whatsoever. Sometimes you don't even notice you were caught until you get the letter.
In return our fines are standardised and relatively cheap though, up to 20 kph over the limit you'll -never- pay more than 35€ (~$40).
>>53279641 Because the damage on my car was so barely visible that it wasn't even worth repairing and the other person was paying for their repairs themselves, so there was absolutely nothing to gain from getting insurance involved. In the worst case they would've found me partially at fault and I would've had to pay part of the other person's repairs or my insurance rate would've risen.
