54 000 EUR Speeding Ticket

Finish inhabitant Reima Kuisla received a very unpleasantly surprise: a 54 000 EUR penalty for driving 23 km/h to fast. The enormity of the fine is possible because of the Finnish law that uses the yearly income to define the penalty for traffic violations. In this case it was 1/120th of the 6 500 000 EUR Mr. Kuisla earns every dozen months. Sounds like a fair system to me. Traffic fines may hurt equal to everyone. Stick to the road traffic rules is a cheeky, but cheap advise…
