'You're knicked son' (in German). I got nicked, twice for speeding by exactly the same apparatus used by the VP in der DDR.

Does speeding abroad affect your licence and so you tell your insurance company ? I assume you do if it’s your own car but if it’s a hire car?

I got caught speeding in road works in Canada years ago almost as soon as I left the airport (Calgary) in a hire car. I was really surprised because I thought I was going slowly due to 1. getting off a 9 hour flight 2. trying to find my way and 3 the road works, but Hertz paid it on my behalf with my credit card number, so I had no choice. 
I never told my insurance or the DVLA though.

Well in my case it was back in 1989 and the country I was nicked in didn't exist about 4 or 5 months after the offence so I kept stum. I also got nicked in Czechoslovakia on the same trip, again the place ceased to exist soon after... It was on my own vehicle - a Moto Guzzi.

A year later, on another Moto Guzzi, I was on my way to the arctic circle and got talking to someone on the ferry who warned me about speeding in Sweden. He got pulled and told to appear in court the next week as he was 'making progress' beyond the scale of on the spot fines. He legged it out of Sweden asap and didn't turn up in court (obvs). He received a letter at home explaining that he was now banned from driving (in Sweden) for x months (can't remember the exact length of time). After the time expired he got another letter saying he could now drive again in Sweden. None of this cost him a penny. No idea if he told his insurance.

Never knew about the frontal door option on those but surely they're missing a trick? If they'd only had a device to guage the speed of an oncoming car they could have saved the extra costs involved with that door. Perhaps that's all the technology had advanced to then though.
