Re: Serious Speeding - the law, the fines.

I donít think you have a chance of changing the outcome whatever you say, so just wait for the pain. I got caught by the camera on the other side of the tunnel a year or so back. I had no idea the variable limit had changed to 80 (itís not always 80) and was doing 121 assuming I was close to the limit. I got a 79k chf fine and 3 month suspension. First and last ticket ever.

I even revisited the Ďscene of the crimeí and found no intermediate 100 limit. So you miss one overhead sign that isnít always there and 79k.

The fine and the ban are handled by to different offices respectively. See also first post of this thread. CHF 600, 1 month ban, and some more hundred CHF in fees is what you have to expect.

No. After the sign the regular speed limit of 80 km/h applies. No other signs needed.

I do not think it will incur higher fees. But I am not sure what kind of evidence you want to provide.

No. The 1 month is when you have no priors.
Thank you for your responses.
Yeah there isn't much I would be explaining, the judge doesn't care if I saw the sign or not, nor if there were any subsequent speed signs. That would be my only leverage.

I'm just going to take the license suspension and the damn ticket like a man and that's it.
I just hope they hurry up in handing me the suspension because if it happens in winter I'm screwed.
Now off to being more than good for 2 years.

Glad i'm not alone in this club, though I hope for a lighter via sicura in the future, it's crazy how much it costs to make such a stupid mistake.
