Speeding Ticket Could Cost Driver $962,000

A Swedish motorist is facing a fine up to as much as $962,000 for driving nearly 180 mph.  Sporting a 570-horsepower black Mercedes-Benz (probably a customized CL 60), costing nearly $ 240,000, this Swede could face a costly ticket depending on his income level.

In Switzerland, speeding fines are based on the severity of the offence and the offender’s income level.  Police reported the driver was driving so fast it took him nearly half a mile to completely stop his car. No word yet on how much his auto insurance premium will jump next month, but with all this money being thrown around, it appears the driver will be fine.

Note to self: If I ever become a billionaire, avoid driving my arsenal of supercars in Sweden.  Perhaps Norway, but definitely not Sweden.
