An American idiot outdoes other American idiots

An American tourist has been fined €500 for driving over the centuries-old Ponte Vecchio bridge in Florence.

The bridge is an iconic attraction that crosses the Arno River in the ancient city.

A 34-year-old Californian drove over the pedestrian bridge in a Fiat Panda rental car.

He claimed - with American ingenuity - that he was looking for a parking spot and didn’t notice he was on the bridge.

His fine included a penalty for driving without an international driver’s licence, Travel Mole reported.

The man was not named in a statement issued by the City of Florence press office.

The Ponte Vecchio is enclosed, lined with shops and normally full of pedestrians. On this occasion no one was hurt.
