I recently heard on the news that in Sweden a driver was fined 900.000 euro for doing 290 km/h on a highway... they said that the speed trap was able to take a picture of the car only because it was a last generation speed trap...

This was in Switzerland on the A12, but the driver was Swedish.

The maximum fine for speeding violations in Sweden is €400 euro.

Same road:



This is one of the crazyest road-movies I have ever seen.

0:06 - Skoda passing
0:29 - Skoda passing again
0:31 - our camera-guy is going a little bit on the opposite direction
0:45 - VW Golf passing
0:50 - favorite scene - crazy truck driver
1:03 - our camera-guy is going again on the wrong lane (maybe he tought that there is going to be an accident and he wanted to catch it live)
1:08 - crazy truck driver nearly hits that Dacia Logan Van
1:12 - crazy truck driver nearly hits that Skoda
1:33 - truck passing another truck... so boooooooooooring
1:48 - truck nearly hits a homeless dog

I bet he protested the fine because it was a "religious discrimination"...

Quick response of the police. Such people deserve a fine. Find a parking lot if you really need to do it.

Dunno if this has been posted at all, but yeah. This scared me. My girlfriend is going back home to Beijing soon so it'll be interesting to hear if she sees anything like this on the roads.

You'll have to excuse the racist/inappropriate ending to the video though. The idiot Australian who made the video obviously hasn't heard of cultural sensitivity at all.

Living in a country where anyone likes to spit on the law (unless it is useful to him), many drivers keep a speed constantly higher than the limit, and desperately brake in front of a speed radar.

Yesterday I was on the A4, right lane, sticky at 130 km/h, and a guy was passing me on the middle lane, not faster than 140. I didn't notice the radar, since I don't care, but the moron did, at the very last moment. I got scared to death, seeing this car just in front of my left corner, suddendly doing an emercengy brake for no apparent reason.

F***!

And what's really annoying, is that people is so unaware of the limit, they brake hard in any case.
Some days ago, on a 1+1 rural road, limit 90, flow of traffic going at a perfect 89-91... all the morons braking due to the radar, slowing to 70. Retards. They don't know what they're doing, and they should not drive.

This happend to me several times. This spring I was driving on DN69 in Romania, and on a little village bypass there was a radar (everybody knew about it since all the oncoming traffic were flashing their lights). Speed limit in that area was 70 km/h, but everybody was doing 40-45 km/h (since they tought that they are inside the village with speed limit 50 km/h, but a sign posted that it was 70 km/h). I passed all of them with 69-70 km/h, and while I was going near them I saw their surprised faces. Even the cop was surprised that I passed but he didn't stopped me because he knew that I didn't do anything wrong.

this is what i've realized, too. people are stupid and think that presence of police control means to slow down, even if they are in limits.
the same is with overtaking too slow police car on open road - often there is a row because nobody doesn't want to overtake them :

That is also true. If a police car goes under the speed limit nobody dares to overtake. I would do that if I know that I'm not going to pass the speed limit while overtaking, if the police car dosen't have lights and/or siren on, and if I don't break any other driving rule. And, of course, if I'm in Romania, not in another country, because I know our road laws very good.

Maybe the Police will stop you anyway to cash their bribes.

I don't think that practice is still very widespread in the European Union. Maybe in some rural area of Romania or Bulgaria.
