it varies in every country<p>depends on how fast over the speed limit the driver is operating...usually every 10 miles/km is one level of penalty/fines/etc...

The speeding tickets seem insane but some seem very reasonable. Here in Canada I'd like to see the failure to indicate fine raised to double what it is in your country. Running a Red light could be higher than yours posted too. And a ban on Cell Phones outright I'm totally for.

as knicks125 said, fines increment with actual speed over the posted speed limit. Usually, (depending on the state) after a certain amount of miles over the speed limit (often 15 or 20 mph) the fines increase to what is known as reckless driving, which bring exponentially higher fines, along with possible legal liability and/or points on your liscence. get enough points or drive fast enough and you could buy yourself a nice suspension or revocation of your driving priviledges.

i'm not bragging here and i've grown up A LOT from when this occurred . . . but speaking from experience<p>111mph in a 65mph (73 toll road, empty @ 6am in the morning) = $875 fine <p>I was not written up for anything other than the basic speed law (going faster than posted speed limit) and I went to traffic school without a hitch<p>it was the 94 and the 89 and 87 that followed that affected my insurance<p>94 in 65 = ~ 700<p>89 & 87 = ~500<p>In CA, when you're over 25mph above the speed limit, the ticket price increases exponentially per 5mph I think<p>(all $USD prices)

I recently recieved a ticket for going 70 mph in a 55 mph zone and was charged 145.00. I went to traffic school for 3 hrs and had the ticket thrown out but I had to pay 50.00 for the class. I also ran a stop sign a few months back and they charged me 75.00 for that. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/bonk.gif" BORDER="0">

Roads in norway aint good, i'm telling you that. german tourists make que on the roads. Cus they arent used to such bad roads. But some places roads are good, very good, and the limits are 80 km/h. that's ****ed. ANd norway is governed by idiots. they have about 5% at elections but team up with more populare partys and get the government. Noone wants them. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> They are afraid people will die in the trafic.<p>Near the capital of norway, there's a big road, abit smaller than Autobahn, there, it is a 100 km/h zone. and coming from that zone and onto a 70 zone, which coulda been 90 zone, the road is good enough for that. People get frustrated going from 100 to 70 and starts passing cars, and it's then the accidents happen. The government kills drivers IMO.

This isn't a personal criticism, but the way my norwegian family puts it, because of the north sea oil whch basically subsidises norway's economy, the norwegian government is able to get away with social programs and high tax rates that would cripple most other states. I guess that includes traffic laws.<p>Isn't Norway the country in which speeding tickets are also graduated based on your income? Basically after a certain speed the amount you pay is partly dependent on how much you make (if you make more you pay more). I know It's a scandinavian country that does this, but I can't remember if it's norway or not.

The winner is: Finland! Read this article from CNN:<p>"HELSINKI, Finland (Reuters) -- One of Finland's richest men has been fined a record 170,000 euros ($217,000) for speeding through the center of the capital, police said on Tuesday.<p>Jussi Salonoja, 27, heir to his family's sausage business, was caught driving 80 km per hour (50 miles per hour) in a 40 kph (25 mph) zone last Thursday, the police said.<p>Finnish traffic fines vary according to the offender's income and, according to tax office data, Salonoja's 2002 earnings were close to seven million euros.<p>The final penalty could still change when the case is eventually heard by a Helsinki court, as was the case with Nokia executive Anssi Vanjoki, whose 116,000-euro speeding fine was slashed by 95 percent in 2002 due to a drop in income.<p>If Salonoja's penalty stands, it will beat a speeding fine of more than 80,000 euros paid by Internet millionaire Jaakko Rytsola in 2000, and the 35,000-euro fine imposed on Nokia President Pekka Ala-Pietila in 2001 for running a red light."<p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/scared.gif" BORDER="0">

it's all relative to PPP, economy, the way the laws are stuctured, etc...<p>I don't see anything wrong with high penalty/fine for violations, especially with repeat offenders<p>however, if you do consider they are insane, then it's probably wise to slow down...

But, It's more expensive to go 100 in a 80 km/h zone than hitting a man half to death... That is even more insane I think.

so let me get the straight, in your country, you'd get fined more if you speed than if you hit someone, now that's indeed insane <p>is there a thing called jail where you are?

Fcuke
04-07-2005, 12:38 PM
jail? what's that?<p>No, of course we have, but not if you hit someone, need evidence and all that sh**. the court system is also messed up in norway. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> hehe.<p>people who kill 20 people gets 21 years on the paper and gets out after 14 years becuase of good behaviour. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0">

Yeah, I'm more like an american on that front. I want death penalty in norway. But Norway is governed by A Christian party that gets 5% of the votes on an elections, but still they get a governement in norway, and still they mumble on about forgiveness. You see, those that kill people can become another person :S<p>
