Motorist gets fined $290,000 for speeding
Thankfully, we’re not the ones on the receiving end of this fine. It’s being reported that a Swiss motorist – and a rich one at that – has been fined a staggering $290,000 for a series of traffic violations stemming from driving his Ferrari Testarossa at over 137 km/h through the roads of a small Swiss village.
According to the court that made the ruling to slap the fine on the man, "the accused ignored elementary traffic rules with a powerful vehicle out of a pure desire for speed."
Fortunately, according to reports, the man has more than enough money to pay for the fine, but still, at $290,000, that’s still a pretty hefty sum to pay for a few parking tickets.
