Guess they take their school zones serious over there.

According to Twitter fines in Finland are levied according to income. That's brilliant.

Good explanation:

 

“Using an overhead projector back at the Interior Ministry, Mr. Wuoma attempts to explain the math. He takes out a piece of paper covered with long equations, which seem more appropriate for a college class in nuclear physics.

The equations start with a motorist’s net monthly income. The figure comes into play whenever a driver is caught going at least 12 miles an hour over the posted limit (below that, the fine is a fixed amount, ranging from $63 to $110). To begin, the driver’s monthly net income is reduced by 255 Euros ($235) and that total is divided by 60. This figure is supposed to represent a person’s daily disposable income.

[That] figure, called a day fine, is then multiplied by a number ranging between one and 120, representing the severity of the violation as determined by the traffic officer. For example, a person driving 20 miles an hour over the limit on a highway in good weather might be assessed 12 day fines.”

Using this information, you can get the rough formula of:

Money owed = Daily disposable income * severity of violation

Breaking it down further you get:

Money owed = ((Motorist’s net monthly income – 255) / 60) * severity of violation

If we assume that we are dealing with “Speeding 25 km/h, speed limit over 60 km/h” as described in the story (12 day fines) we get:

Money owed = ((Motorist’s net monthly income – 255) / 60) * 12

or

y = 12((x – 255)/60)

where y represents the money owed and x represents the motorist’s net monthly income.

  A fine of 150,000 USD is nothing.  Risto will make that up in tax savings his first year in Tampa.

At least it wasn't a dwi 

No, cause then he'd be destined for a trade to a Stanley Cup winner and a Conn Smyth Trophy.

Like most good socialist countries their speeding fines are income based.

Its good to be young, rich, immortal and stupid.

Do they have Tim Horton’s in Finland?

 

This is the consequences of driving that fast.

Heatley was driving considerably faster than 50mph & was drunk had been drinking to boot.

Really don't see the similarity between the 2 situations.

Agreed, and I think he was also drag-racing a teammate (I think the one that died) through regular Atlanta highway traffic IIRC.

Heatley wasn't legally drunk and wasn't charged with any alcohol offenses. Although he had been drinking before the accident, he went on to say his only mistake that night was driving too fast. Dan Snyder was his passenger. His family argued for leniency for Heatley.
