This Cheese-Cam Is In Switzerland, Not Wisconsin

It’s a pity our blog isn’t more popular in Sweden.

Just a few days ago we reported on a license plate ‘hack‘ that reduces your vulnerability to being spotted by speed cameras. It might have saved a (very) rich Swedish man his $1,000,000 fine.

Record speeding fine of £650,000 given to motorist in Switzerland. Swedish man receives highest possible penalty calculated on basis of his income and speed of 300kph.

Switzerland calculates speeding fines using a formula based on the income of the motorists and the severity of the speed. And in this case we are talking about some serious speed.

Benoît Dumas, a police officer in the region where the six-litre Mercedes SLS was stopped, said: “He needed over half a kilometre of road to come to a halt.”

According to prosecutors he is now facing the highest possible penalty of 300 days of fines at £2,166 a day – a total of £650,000.

But even more amazing is the fact that the speed camera which captured his foul deed was disguised as a block of cheese!

Yes Indeed, It's A Cheese-Cam

I guess if you are going 300 kph you wouldn’t smell anything cheesy until it’s too late.

Please pass the crackers.
