£116,000 fine for somebody who earned £7m is the equivalent, proportionally, of a £330 fine to
somebody who earns £20,000.

Seems a big fine for 50mph in a 25mph limit, but no ban - which there almost certainly would be for
60mph in a 30mph here, and which would be a FAR bigger problem for Joe Average than for the
plutocrat, who'd just hire a chauffeur.

Ah, here we go - http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/3044539.stm - "equivalent to 14
days income"

Fine equivalent to 1.5 months income for drink-drive.

Seems to make an awful lot of sense to me.

No, no, no, no, no! We can do without cross-postings to uk.rec.driving!

I felt they *had* to know how much a sensible speeding fine is.
