5500 Euro :groan:if driving 50 km over the speed limit, UK

2180 + Euro when driving 50 km over the speed limit, Austria

1375 Euro, if you have no reflective warning vest in your boot,( to be worn when outside around the car in a situation like changing a tyre or in an accident) Belgium

1500 Euro, drunk driving,night, Italy
540 Euro, drunk driving, during the day,Italy, don't know why the difference, newspaper also does not explain why.

970 Euro, drunk driving, Czech Republic

250 Euro, driving over a red traffic light, Sweden

155 Euro, mobile in one hand, driving with the other, Italy

and don't forget, in most European countries there is no 'po chelovetshki' factor. you offer a bribe, the fine becomes heavier.

Fines is not the answer, good education is, and I am not talking of the school one here

Not everywhere in Russia.
Kaliningrad region looks pretty well in this sense - I've spent several days there at vacation... and return to Moscow was unpleasant...

No. The most effective way is "whip and gingerbread". ;) Education can get a fault, this method never.

I kinda agree on the red traffic light one...if anything that should be more expensive than it is (as it's infinitely more dangerous than some other offenses that cost more)

I'm actually looking forward to at some point take my Russian car to my home country on a road trip and "ignore" the automatic speed cameras just for the fun of it.

PS: I've gotten a 50 fine in Belgium for driving 1 km/h over the limit on the highway...to be fair I was clocked at 127 but after the legal correction that became only 121 :gay:

Does fine depend on how many km/h were registered over?
