    LOL. I love it - the fine is a formula based on how fast you are going and your annual income.

    He was clocked at almost 300 kmh, which is 185 mph. The speed limit was 110, or around 68 mph. He claims the spedometer was faulty. Ummmmmm, even without a spedometer I can tell the difference between 185 and 68!

    So, since I'm still unemployed, maybe if I head over there and drive really slow, they might give me some money?

    My Meeple is purple. What color is yours?

    The million dollars probably won't faze him too much. Less than a $200 fine would effect me.

    Anyone who has a car that can do that kind of speed can probably afford the fine, plus that country is like a playground to the rich and famous anyway as it's a tax haven!..

    What happens if I speed that much and I am not rich?

    Well, if you're not rich, I doubt that you'll be driving a car that can go that fast.
