Apparently a guy in Europe was fined $280 000 for a speeding infringment recently.
In his country of residence, speeding fines are linked to how much money you earn. Unluckily for this guy he was a millionare, and the fine represents a percentage of his income.

Hows that for a

If you got the cash.

$280,000 to him probably means the same as $280 to me

Re: $280 000 Speeding fine!

how do they actually do it? do they run a check on the car? or do they just send out the fine later, this is if a cop pulls someone over not a speed camera

Re: $280 000 Speeding fine!

Repost, this happened about this time last year, and the man is question was a financial officer of a company in finland I think. For some reason (read tax dodge), the company "loaned" him a large amount of money at tax census date. After the census date, the money was transfered back to the company. However a few months later, so the story goes, he got nicked for high speed, and they based the fine on his net worth at census date

Re: $280 000 Speeding fine!

I remember hearing a couple of stories like this...one guy who was pulled over was the head of Nokia I think....and boy did he get a massive fine!
