    #3588222 - 01/06/05 11:00 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

if youre caught speeding over posted speed limit-4 to 19 mph you pay $500. caught over 20mph posted speed limit you pay $1,000.

shit why not index fines to income levels like the Scandinavian countries do?

if you're driving 20+ over you deserve it. They should also multilpy the fine based on the weight of the car, how high it is off the ground and double it if a cell phone is present.

kinda, but if a poor person misses a day of work he may not make rent. A rich person might miss a tee time.

Finn's speed fine is a bit rich


It is not just Finland's successful rally drivers who put their feet down
One of Finland's richest men has been handed a record 170,000 euros speeding ticket, thanks to the country's policy of relating the fine to your income.
Jussi Salonoja, the 27-year-old heir to a family-owned sausage empire, was given the ?116,000 ticket after being caught driving 80km/h in a 40km/h zone.

Helsinki police came up with the figure after tax office data showed that Mr Salonoja earned close to ?7m in 2002.

If his penalty stands it will beat the previous record of almost 80,000 euros.

That figure (?54,000) was paid in 2000 by Finnish internet millionaire Jaakko Rytsola, when he was caught speeding.

Yet Mr Salonoja could yet get his penalty reduced, as was the case with Nokia executive Anssi Vanjoki.

In 2002, Mr Vanjoki's 116,000 euros fine was reduced by no less than 95% due to his drop in income following a downturn in the mobile phone maker's profits.

i like relating it to your income...but i dont have much faith in our government for them to be able to set it up right.

im glad divided sky isnt a cop :grin:  although i do see where your coming from.  but then maybe we should be able to sue the city for not having ANYWHERE to go fast...or maybe the car companies for making our cars able to go so fast.  other then montana and maybe a couple other highways in north america, are there really any areas that are a 100+ mph which pretty much any new, gas, car can go.
