ZURICH – A Swiss millionaire has been given a record speeding fine – of $290,000!
The man is a well-known millionaire, who owns a villa with five luxury cars. As a repeat offender of speeding limits, he was judged more harshly by the court.
After he was caught driving a red Ferrari Testarossa at 85 mph through a small village, about 35 mph faster than the limit, the court issued him a speeding fine of $290,000!
The fine was calculated based on the driver’s wealth, believed to be about $22.7 million.
“The accused ignored elementary traffic rules with a powerful vehicle out of a pure desire for speed,” the court said in its judgment.
