Leaned on

I have just received a fine in the post from the municipality of PISA, for an alleged infringement of circulating in a restricted traffic zone without authorisation. The date of the offence was 12 Aug 08, and the photo on the website shows the back of a FIAT Panda which may have been the one we hired. The notice demands 115 Euros for payment in 60 days or 187.50 Euros otherwise. Is this a scam or should I pay up? What happens if I don't, as I cannot remember whether we visited on this day?
