The owner of a Mercedes SLS AMG was surprised by Swiss police radar unit with 290 km/h in an area where speed was limited to 120 km/h.

Switzerland has become one of European countries with the most severe fines for speedy drivers. A recent case proves it. It was recorded on the highway linking Lausanne to Bern.

A Mercedes SLS AMG was surprised by the police radar with a speed of 290 km/h, well above the speed limit – only 120 km/h. The difference of 170 km/h resulted in the issuance of a fine hard to imagine, because in Switzerland, the warning is directly proportional to the revenues of the accused.

In these circumstances, the German supercar owner will have to pay a fine amounting to one million dollars, almost three times the price of the car. Police wanted to ensure that the owner, aged 37, will pay the fine, so they confiscated the his SLS AMG.
