You Australians have it good -- trust me, $425 is nothing compared to some places

Quote:
In 2001, a Finnish businessman with a yearly income of 10 million euros, received a relatively mild punishment of six day-fines, amounting €26,000, for driving though a red traffic light. In 2009 a businessman was fined €112,000 for travelling at 82 kilometers per hour in an area with a speed limit of 60 kilometers per hour
In Germany they have a different system. If you cycle through a red light, they will check if you have a driving license. If you do, you will get points on the license and could end up being banned from driving -- that's for a cycling offense!

@Palo5
According to your very interestiing quote, it seems that in Finland a fine is proportionnal to the income.
But is it proportionnal to the income or the global fortune?

Any idea?

In France it's similar as the German case that you reported.

It depends on your income. The authorities find out from the tax office how much you earned in the last year, and work out how much you earn per day. Then if they fine you 7 days' pay, you pay 7 times your daily earnings

The Germans have a similar system for criminal cases, but not for traffic offenses. The reason the Finns have that system is because if a rich man and a poor man had to go to prison, they'd both get the same sentence and would suffer the same. But if a poor man is fined say €100, it would hurt a lot, whereas a rich man wouldn't notice it, and that's why he has to pay more. I think that's real justice & fairness. The Finns are very fair people

traffic fines in general in Australia are disproportionate and nutzo...we have people committing home invasions and carjackings who are literally penalised less than people who overstay a parking meter..

If NSW cyclists are anything like Berkeley/Oakland cyclists they are indeed stupid and dangerous. I take it they routinely fail to observe stop signs and traffic signals, ride on the wrong side of the road and against traffic on one way streets, illegally ride on the sidewalks and bully pedestrians out of their way. One of these days I will wind up hitting one of these dummies and they will be shocked to learn that they are not only responsible for their own medical expenses but also liable for damages to my car.

You've just accurately described a breed of cyclist common in a lot of countries..particularly in urban areas....it seems to have a causal relationship with wearing lycra....as does the delusion that wearing lycra obviates any need to obey the road rules....but ongoing studies seem to demonstrate that the 'lycra forcefield' has rather poor protective qualities....

You take it correctly. I don't mind having to look out for some slightly chubby, bearded, helmeted bloke riding for exercise, but the authorities should have an open season on Lycra Warriors.

I'm in the midst of getting a bicycle. I can't imagine using it for lengthy trips. I'm ****** to know why people ride in some of the places I drive. It might not mean much to people not living near the area. But seeing riders on Springvale Rd & Rosanna rd. Do they not know how ****** dangerous that is???
