Who has not driven through Italian city centres and been filmed or photographed by the local administration? Who can claim not to have received parking tickets from private companies with adventurous names such as European Municipility Outsorcing, a company of Nivi s.r.l.? It is now reported that the Court of Cassation, by decision of 3 November 2020 (number 2866), upheld a complaint by a German motorist against such a ticket against such a ticket. There was no dispute that the administrative offence had been committed; however, for the benefit of the German motorist, the Court of Cassation had to take into account that the German State had not complied with the agreement on the service of administrative acts by post. This results in the practical consequence for traffic offenders that incoming correspondence from companies commissioned by Italian municipalities to collect debts can be sent directly to the final file.
