121,000 euro fine for speeding? Yes it is true

Speeding fines are a reality and happen frequently. Cars are ready to go fast, but the law doesn’t allow it! A businessman was fined 121,000 euros for speeding (30 km/h).

Speed: Offender 30 kmph over the limit

The news was first reported by The Guardian, which reveals that it is one of the largest fines in the world. A Finnish businessman was fined 121,000 euros for driving 30 km/h over the speed limit.

Anders Wickloff refers to the Nya Aland newspaper Guardian

I am very sorry. I started walking slowly, but I don't think it was fast enough.

Now according to the accused, he was caught driving at a speed of 82 kmph as the speed limit changed "suddenly" from 70 kmph to 50 kmph.

According to the newspaper, in Finland, fines are calculated taking into account the seriousness of the crime and the offender's salary. Police have the ability to instantly verify taxpayers by connecting them to their database through mobile phones.

According to the Finnish system, a "daily fine" is used, which is calculated from the offender's daily salary, usually considered half of the net daily value. In other words, the more you earn, the more you pay. Then, if the driver exceeds the speed limit, the number of daily fines he gets will increase.
