Well if you think speeding is expensive in Canada...



...I just got a ticket for 11km over the limit and had to pay close to 300 Euros!
I need to get me a decent radar detector asap!!!!!

thats if you go 50 over, not 11 over. please read what he initially wrote and stop dwelling on your "zomg I almost got charged with stunting".

But I bet speeding tickets do not affect your insurance like they do in Canada.

Oh yes they do.
I was doing 105 on a 90km road in the middle of nowhere.
You get -4km to cover accuracy of their equipment so i got done for 11km over.
And yes i did think about buying the country but i would rather wait for the sale! lol
