The fast and the furious

Everybody hates getting a speeding ticket, but probably not nearly as much as this guy:
A Swiss court has fined a multimillionaire a record $290,000 for speeding through a village at 85 mph in his red Ferrari Testarossa, news outlets in Switzerland report.

The fine is based on the unidentified speeder's wealth and his previous fast offenses. Swiss voters approved a penalty system that replaces prison for such crimes as speeding with "day fines" based on wealth — in this case $22.7 million.


Swiss news media reported that the man owns a villa with five luxury cars, including the Ferrari.
Yeah, well I guess it sure sucks to be him, huh?
