Driver slapped with $129,544 speeding fine; Here's why


Beloved Misanthrope
Finland has a special way of calculating fines

If time is money, his time had better be worth a lot.

A wealthy Finnish man who was ticketed for driving 20 mph over the speed limit has been issued a $129,544 fine for the infraction.

Anders Wiklöf was caught going 82 kph (51 mph) in a 50 kph (31 mph) zone in the Aaland Islands.

Speeding ticket fines are pegged to a driver's income in Finland, based on their daily estimated disposable income.

Damn I hope DC doesn't get any ideas. :yikes:


Just sneakin' around....
So... what happens when someone's net worth is zero? Can they ignore the speed limits, and get zero-cost tickets?
