Your Honor I Sold My Business But Lost Money So The Speeding Ticket Fine Should Be Less

GlobalMotors.net reports that Finnish millionaire Jari Bär, the former owner of the Iisalmi’s company Finnritilä was fined 111,888 euros ($141,661) for doing 82 km/h (51 mph) in a 60 km/h (37 mph) zone in Siilijärvi, Finland. Driving fines in Finland are issued according to one's salary per day. As Mr. Bär was 2 km over the standard fine range he had to pay his 12 days income. If his income in 2007 had been 50 euros a day, then the ticket would have been 600 euros. In 2007 he sold a majority stake in his company and in average made an impressive 9300 euros a day, which translates to a 111,888 euros speeding ticket.
