A man in the United States drove 140 kilometres per hour on a road where he was only allowed to drive 90 kilometres per hour. His driving style did not go unnoticed and he received a hefty fine of no less than 1.4 million dollars. This is equivalent to approximately 1.3 million euros.
The man initially thought the fine was a mistake. However, he was told by the court that he had to pay the entire amount or he would have to appear in court. He was quite shocked by this, but soon discovered that everyone has to appear in court if you drive 55 kilometres per hour over the speed limit in Georgia.
Officials from the city of Savannah, Georgia, later clarified that the high fine is symbolic. The judge determines the actual fine, which cannot exceed one thousand dollars. A spokesperson for the city says that they are working on adjusting the current reporting to avoid confusion in the future.
