>Swiss, et cetera have it right in matching the penalty to the goal of decreasing dangerous and unwanted behavior.
All that this creates is a situation whereby the rich people are the ones doing the speeding because they can afford it and also because they have very nice, very fast cars.
Almost every week in the "20 Minutes" a free local Swiss newspaper, you read about someone in a fast expensive car breaking the speed limit and getting severly fined.
Here is a link to what I believe is the current record breaker. 300 000 Chf for doing 140Kmh in a 100kmh zone.. The driver, a german, who has already been fined for the same thing multiple times, is a multimillionaire...... Does it stop people driving fast, not in the slightest.
Here is another, this time a Swiss driver
There really are examples of this kind of thing, albeit smaller fines but similar speeds, every week.
(It's quite common to see bikes).
