Be Careful! You Can Get $60,000 Speeding Ticket

It’s not a joke! You should beware of Finnish traffic law, since one man in Finland did get this astronomical speeding ticket. Just in case you’re a millionaire. Actually, businessman Reima Kuisla was driving 64mph (103kph) in a 50mph (80kph) zone and when police officer stopped him. Since, authorities reportedly checked his 2013 tax returns and found he made 6.5 million euros (around $7.15 million) that year, they issued him 54,000 euros (a nearly $60,000) speeding ticket.
Be Careful! You Can Get $60,000 Speeding Ticket According to BBC, Kuisla later complained on his Facebook page saying that “Finland is impossible to live in for certain kinds of people who have high incomes and wealth.” Kuisa’s speeding ticket of $60,000 may be a piece of cake if compare with $290,000 ticket–a world record paied by rich Ferrari driver with a history of violations in Switzerland, whose net worth was estimated at more than $20 million. I really feel sorry for both of them! Be Careful! You Can Get $60,000 Speeding Ticket

Bentley Supersports Shatters World Speed Record on Sheet Ice

Bentley Supersports Convertible on the Ice Track

Rally champion, Juha Kankkunen achieves 205.48 mph (330.695 km/h) in extreme Bentley convertible

(Oulu, Finland. 15 February 2011) – Finland’s four-time world rally champion Juha Kankkunen drove a Bentley Continental Supersports convertible on the hazardous frozen waters of the Baltic Sea, off the coast of Finland, at a breathtaking 205.48 mph (330.695 km/h) to set a new world speed record on ice. Kankkunen was in irresistible form with his all-wheel drive, 6-litre, 12-cylinder Continental Supersports convertible which, in line with the Company’s CO2 strategy, ran on biofuel. The world’s fastest soft top enabled Juha to shatter his own 2007 world ice speed record of 199.83 mph (321.6 km/h) set in the Continental GT at the same location. With the help of his own experienced team and Bentley engineers, Kankkunen overcame the challenges of temperatures as low as minus 30 degrees, sudden snow blizzards and potentially dangerous crosswinds on the 16.5km track on a 70cm-thick layer of sea ice. The record attempt was driven on a 1000m long measured distance with the speed certified by officials from the Finland Traffic Police. His new world record was based on the average of two runs in opposite directions with measured speeds ratified by a representative of The Guinness Book of Records.
