Swedish Man Faces World’s Biggest Ever Speeding Ticket

A Swedish man was given the world’s biggest ever speeding fine at £650,000 after being convicted yesterday.

He was caught doing 180 mph in a brand new Mercedes SLS and said that “I think the speedo on the car, which is new, is faulty”.

The sum of his fine was calculated using a formula that uses both the drivers income and the speed at which they were caught.

He will now have to pay £2,166 per day for 300 days; in total, £649,800.

A police spokesperson said after the conviction: “We have no record of anyone being caught travelling faster in the country”.
