A New Potential Record For A Traffic Ticket Fine


A Swedish motorist is facing a $962,000 fine for speeding 180 mph on a highway in Switzerland while driving a $240,000 Mercedes Benz with 570-horsepower. Fines in Switzerland are based not only on the severity of the offense but also on a motorist’s income level.

If imposed, this fine will shattered the prior record for a speeding ticket fine.

Police said the lead-footed motorist avoided radars because their devices are unable to clock speeds beyond 125 mph. A newer speed camera, however, was able to record the speeding. I can only imagine what the fine would be if this motorist had beat the record for the fastest speeding ticket ever … 242 mph.
