Speeding Ticket

Hello All,

I got "blitzed" going 26kmh over the limit in a 50kmh zone. How much is it going to cost me...

I am confused by what I am reading... some sites say 600CHF others says 20days pay?!?

Someone help...

Thanks,
Drew

Re: Speeding Ticket

As per the above - although you may want to clarify all the number on the letter. It usually says something along the lines of:
- Registered speed
- Allowed speed
- Tolerance
- Excessive speed.

You look the "Excessive speed" up on the chart based on the type of road.

If you are on the lower table then you'll also have an administrative penalty - licence surrender + court fees.

Re: Speeding Ticket

probably 2 months of walking, the fine won't kill you if its a first offence

Re: Speeding Ticket

I've (actually my wife) has been caught 3 times .. First two were a couple of kms over in a 50 km zone, fine 20chf each.
Like 56 recorded, 50 allowed, tolerance 4, fined for 52.
Third was 96 (i think) in an 80 zone, tolerance 9, fined for 87.. Fine was 120 for that one.

I think yours will be pretty painful since it's probably 23 over in 50 zone!
