Re: Serious Speeding - the law, the fines.

A British tourist on his way home was caught down the road doing 160 last year. He lost his car and license- but never heard anymore. Would love to know what happened.

Mind you, this is on a stretch of road where I experienced 200 km/hr in 1967ish - in my BF's dad's Mustang Shelby. Sadly he was driving, not me

From the good ol' pre-Ford days! Well played.

I'm slightly dubious about an early model Shelby Mustang getting to 125 mph on Swiss roads in the mid-60s, but then again, if it was a (rare) '67 GT 500 with the ridiculous 427 cu in motor...

Wife driving, just speeding so got CHF 40 fine. No problem, expected it.
I'm registered owner, so fine comes to me.
Wrong thread Please come back when you get a court summons, police invite, etc.

Simple fines are anonymous. Pay and forget.
