Over speeding in Finland can cost you £84,057 even if you are cruising 10 miles over the limit. £39,250 isn’t the thing of past


You may agree that going 10mph over the speed limit in a 50 mile zone can cost you about £100 and three points on your licence. Depending on circumstances, there is a possibility that you could be disqualified from driving for a certain period.

Meanwhile in the UK, a driver was reported over speeding on the motorway near Surrey as he was doing 66mph in a 50mph zone. He was a 23-year-old and was fined £100 along with three points on the 25th of February 2015. He was just testing the power of his new car engine but caught over speeding.

But if you are in Finland the story is totally different as you can face a huge amount of fine; £39250 to be precise on over speeding even if you are doing 14mph over the limit. Yes! It happened with a Finish motorist, where a similar violation of speed limit cost him €54,024.

ReimaKuisla was on his way to the airport when the incident happened as he was actually doing 64mph in a 50mph speed zone. This certainly is a massive fine, but you need to know how Finland calculates the charge.

Finland calculates fines on the basis of your daily income, where a daily wager with €70 cannot be equal to the businessman earning €70,000 daily. They get this data from the previous year’s tax return.

ReimaKuisla earned over €6.5 million (£ 4.7 million) in 2013. He had a penalty equivalent to £39250. Here is a list of luxury cars you can get with this much amount of money:-

For £37,840, you can have a Land Rover Discovery 3.0 SDV6

For £36,654, you can have an Audi Q5 2.0 TDI Quattro S Tronic

For £39,532, you can have a Mercedes Benz E Class E250 CDI AMG 7G-Tronic

For £39,627, you can have a Mercedes-Benz V Class V220 BlueTEC SE Auto

For £39,860, you can have Mercedes Benz CLS 220 BlueTEC AMG 7G-Tronic diesel Coupe

According to data from

The reason behind this theory of fine calculation is justice for everyone. He said, “Ten years ago I wouldn’t have believed that I would seriously consider moving abroad. Finland is impossible to live in for certain kinds of people who have high incomes and wealth.” This isn’t the first time when anyone has paid a massive fine on over speeding; a Nokia executive paid €116,000 (£84,057) in 2002 for the same offence.
