Speeding millionaire fined $290,000

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ST. GALLEN, Switzerland (AP) — A Swiss court has slapped a wealthy speeder with a chalet-sized fine — a full $290,000.

Judges at the cantonal court in St. Gallen, in eastern Switzerland, based the record-breaking fine on the speeder’s estimated wealth of over $20 million.

A statement on the court’s Web site says the driver — a repeat offender — drove up to 35 miles an hour (57 kilometers an hour) an hour faster than the 50-mile-an-hour (80-kilometer-an-hour) limit.

The Blick daily newspaper in Zurich reported the fine was more than twice the previous Swiss record of about $107,000.
