... the fines are not always paid, hence the fines were recently increased!!!
Maybe the Greeks need to make sure that all fines and all taxes are paid! Could perhaps help their current economic crisis. I found it quite sad to drive around some of the buildings in Athens, to be told that they are not being maintained because the Government has no money!
