Speeding offences in Switzerland
Speeding offences in Switzerland are taken very seriously by the Swiss police. Most notably, in 2010, Switzerland set a world record after fining a speeding driver one million Swiss francs. In the future, the Swiss government plans to ease rules and punishments for speeding offences - though speeding at over 200 kilometres an hour will likely always be punished in the alpine nation.
