If you are rich avoid speeding in Switzerland

A Swedish motorist faces a world-record speeding fine of SFr1.08m ($1,000,000.00).

The 37-year-old Swede was caught driving his Mercedes SLS AMG sports car at 290km/h (180mph) which was 170km/h (105 mph) over the limit.

Under Swiss law, the level of fine is determined by the wealth of the driver as well as the speed recorded.

In January, a Swiss driver was fined $290,000 - the current world record.
