SPEEDING

caught him doing ~20mph over the limit 3 times, what a big deal, lel.
Jackass.

I speed every day but in California the posted speed limit is really 33% less than the legal speed limit. everyone knows this, even the police.

Europe has some really harsh driving rules
it depends... usual european speed limits are pretty fair: 50 km/h (~31 mph) in populated areas like cities or villages, 90 km/h (~56 mph) on most roads, and 130 km/h (~81 mph) on most freeways. in hungary, they don't even fine you if your speed was less than 20 km/h over the speed limit on a freeway, and the fine for a moderate speeding (between 150-170 km/h, 93-106 mph) is around 30k local money, a bit over $100. and to get a ~$1000 fine, you have to drive over 240 km/h (150 mph) on a freeway with a speed limit of 130 km/h.

in some countries, fines are related to the person's salary. dunno about uk rules too much, but that might have influenced lemina's fine.

He had the fine reduced to something like £2000 on a technicality.

And yes, the initial fine was down to his salary. You are fined a number of week's salary for various offences, on top of the standard penalty fine.

I just got caught driving 66km/hrs (or was it 69?) in a zone limited to 50km/hrs with my 35yrs old crippled Vespa and I had to pay 600 swiss francs (=530euros).

It sucks, but I’m okay that driving over the limit causes expensive fines here, it‘s a dangerous shit thing.
Damn, that's expensive too. Never got a ticket myself, they're generally 200-300€ depending on conditions (not salary though).
