A wealthy driver has been fined €121,000 ($129,544) for speeding in Finland, where such penalties are calculated on the basis of an offender’s income.
“I really regret the matter,” Anders Wiklof told Monday’s edition of the Nya Aaland,the main newspaper for the Aaland Islands, an autonomous region of Finland in the Baltic Sea.
He said that he was aware he was going from a 70 to a 50 zone and that he had been slowing down, but that evidently he had not slowed quickly enough.He also expressed hope that the money he paid would be used for health care.
Reckon there should be harsher penalties for drivers in Fiji maybe we should follow in Finlands steps.
