Act together!

This is a British site covering a European story, why on earth isn't the fine reported in Euros, who cares how man dollars it was!

re: Manual conversion and Or around

I'm sorry but this is ridiculous, and your 'conversions' remind me of the time I tried to use toy money to buy an ice cream as a child.

US Dollars may look more realistic than the pretend money I tried to use back then, but I'm sure you could much more than a mere $1641 for 20 quid. Shit, even the choco coins I sent my nephew and niece for Christmas only cost a fiver between them.

I suppose it all comes down to whether you want something you can play with or sweets. And if I know British kids, they'll take the sweets every time.

Local knowledge would help

1 € = 15.64664 Estonian Kroons... which makes it € 1,118.45.

Today's £ rate is 20.9681, so the fine is equal to £ 834.60.

Caution - flamebait

one of google's more useful features:

Google for: 17500EEK in eur

get Taimo's result.

@Matt - I fully agree. And when the Brits finally see the light and get the Euro, we can scrap yet another conversion.
