Default I guess Mattie wasn't kidding.....

Not long ago in a thread that escapes my memory, Mattison described the math that goes into speeding tickets in Finland. While I 100% believed him, I guess I didn't extrapolate the consequences of speeding if you were a person of wealth. I guess that's because I'm not a person of wealth.

But anyway, check out this.

To sidetrack slightly.

Where I live in the UK, in some streets they have introduced a 20MPH speed limit. So even allowing for a 10% discretionary margin of error, you could theoretically get charged with speeding at 23 MPH!!

I'm no speed freak on residential roads and believe there is a time and a place for it. But really, 23 MPH?
