Unusual Penalties

For improper baby name in 1991, Elisabeth Hallin and Lasse Diving protested against one of the Swedish law that prohibits giving children names that are not approved by special resolution and are "Wrong". Couples had to pay a fine of 5,000 kroner (680 dollars) for what they called his son "Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116". Between themselves, they called the boy "Albin" and argue that their choice for official documents name expresses their creative vision, personal opinion, and so on. Harsh Swedish judge these arguments are not impressed, so he decided to choose another name. Parents suggested the name "A", that is, in one letter, to which the judge replied, that single-letter names are not allowed. It was finally chosen a name "Albin Hallin". About how the child would live with the original name, the freedom-loving parents, apparently, not thought of for speeding to think – you say, just something speeding. We do this very often but not in a hurry, now I will tell the amount of the fine.

650.000 euros. Yes, yes, more than half a million euros for speeding! You might think that the driver simply flying at the speed of light, but In fact 37-year-old man was driving on Swiss territory at a speed of 289 kilometers per hour in his Mercedes sls amg worth 140,000 euros. It is almost a threefold excess of speed, so other than the penalty he also took the law. A huge amount of penalty due to the fact that local laws determine the amount of the fine depends on speeding and income level offender, and they had, apparently, rather big. A driver in his own defense said that the blame for everything a faulty speedometer, and he supposedly went not fast.
