Driver slapped with $129,544 speeding fine; Here's why

If time is money, his time had better be worth a lot.

A wealthy Finnish man who was ticketed for driving 20 mph over the speed limit has been issued a $129,544 fine for the infraction.

Anders Wiklöf was caught going 82 kph (51 mph) in a 50 kph (31 mph) zone in the Aaland Islands.

Speeding ticket fines are pegged to a driver’s income in Finland, based on their daily estimated disposable income.

Despite the huge amount Wiklöf paid for the latest ticket, it is far from a world record.
