Re: Serious Speeding - the law, the fines.

I think you were unlucky even with that. Normally the first serious offence like that gets a moderate fine, perhaps up to 1k, with the huge hammer fine on 2 year suspended, i.e, normal approach out here: first time, smacked wrist, do it again and they will cut your johnson off.

in a financial sense, of course.

I know someone who got that kind of fine then did do it a second time at the same speed and on the same camera and was duly made to pay an unspeakably large amount of wedge.
fine was from Uri, the suspension was from Ticino. my understanding is that since the new stricter rules (about 2015?) this is now a federal requirement for them to do this. so no way out of it. i can't imagine what would happen if i did it again within 5 years, but i'd probably end up moving to another country!
