Unfortunately I think they will be very difficult to find here in Italy. I only found two Sammarinese coins in 11 years, none from Monaco and none from Estonia. Vatican 50-cents dated 2010-11-12 appear in circulation relatively often and they aren't particularily rare.

54 euro for going 85 where 70 is the limit.

That's not so bad. You'd pay three times as much in Holland.

The fine would be € 85 in the Netherlands for driving 15 km/h over the limit on non-urban roads.

The fine would be 0 euro in Hungary for the same action. However, for breaking the limit by 16 km/h, the fine is 30,000 forint, approx. 100 euro.

Considering tolerances and other factors, I was sanctioned for going 80 (just 10 km/h over the limit), although recorded speed was 85.

That section of the road (SS11 Padana Superiore) is really tricky, because general limit is 90 but just before the tunnel it is reduced to 70 (where the trap is placed) and then 50 in the tunnel. I just couldn't brake fast enough.

In Romania the fine would be ~18 € (if you pay in max. 48 hours), or 37-55 € if you pay later.

Isn't in Hungary allowed +10% of the speed limit? So at speed limit of 70 km/h, you get a fine only after you pass 77 km/h.

No, it is not defined in percent but in km/h. Tolerance is 15 km/h up to 100, and 20 km/h over 100 km/h. It means that at a speed limit of 30 km/h (e.g. in front of a school) you can drive at 44.5 km/h and you won't be fined.

And I was scared and drove with max 54 km/h inside villages near the Romanian border, while I could have done 64 km/h.

Are you sure it's like that? Because in the past I heard it's 10%.

Absolutely.
However, if police stops you in the field (which may only happen if you have some other problem as well, e.g. you drive without lights in the night), then you may be fined even for a very slight speeding (limit + 4 km/h).

In Estonia that would be a fine of €33. If you get caught in a speed-trap, the fine is €3 for every km/h over the speed limit and 4km/h is detracted from the recorded speed due to tolerances. Anything below 7km/h over the limit isn't even recorded.

In Italy it's -5 km/h up to 100, then 5%.

Those machines today are precise, so if one gets a ticket for doing 85, he was doing 85; then he'll be fined for doing 80.

Given the -5 rule, plus the error of cars' speedometer, you can keep slightly under 10 km/h over the limit with no worries, at least outside town. Let's say the needle should not touch the next step.

To be fined in a 50 zone with my Passat, I should do at least 61 according to the speedometer.

Car speedometers are mostly quite precise in the region around 50 km/h and less. Above 100 km/h however precision varies quite a lot. I was fined once for going 99 in 80 km/h zone, my speedometer was targeted exactly on 100 with cruise control.

Speedometer visual precision varies among models/makers as well. At least that is what I got from checking speed info from GPS readings (using different cars with cruise control)

It also depends on the size of the wheel and the tyre profile etc.

When I was in Italy we drove a Fiant Grande Punto and when we were doing 130km/h according to the GPS, the speedometer showed 140+km/h.

My experience shows that most cars have around 10% error at motorway speed, especially older and/or cheaper ones. However at slower urban speed most are more or less correct (maybe a couple km/hs of difference). They were mostly purportedly built so.

Finally did a complete lap around Z-40, Zaragoza beltway. It was on my to-do list. But I didn't drive it in one shot, I drove from E07 to A-23 and then back to E07 but via the other side. I have nicknamed every section of the beltway, as well as every major crossing.
