Should speeding fines be based on wealth?
A driver who was caught speeding in Switzerland could face a world-record fine of SFr1,080m ($1m; £656,000), prosecutors say. Should fines be income-linked?
The Swedish driver, who has not been named, was said to be driving his Mercedes sports car at 290km/h which is 170km/h over the limit.
Under Swiss law, the level of fine is determined by the wealth of the driver and the speed recorded. Earlier this year, a driver was fined $290,000 - the current world record.
Do income-based fines improve road safety? Would you like to see something similar in your country? Do you live in Switzerland?
