I wonder who got fired for suggesting "You know what will bring in some extra money? Renting out this Ferrari for $50"

foxyshadis: Father_Jack: clear_prop: Assuming the pics were taken soon after the accident, a 23 yo in a Ferrari in the farking RAIN is a disaster on wheels. I'm surprised he made it 15 minutes.

to be fair, this is switzerland, where it rains more often than it doesnt.

swiss insurance in regards to driving is very hard core. the speed limits here are artificially low and there are radar boxes EVERYWHERE. people get these huge tickets for relatively light infractions... a colleague of mine got a 1600 CHF fine (CHF=1USD more or less) for going 16kph over the speed limit. For the americans on the thread, that's like a 1600buck fine for doing 75 in a 65 mph zone, like say on the freeway.

if youre in a motorcycle crash and youre not dressed appropriately, the insurance companies can deny portions of your medical bills. (ie, if youd been wearing armor and leather, you wouldnt need that skin graft, too bad, your fault, heres your 300,000 medical bill) and they can withhold wages till you pay it off.

based on these precedents, it wouldnt surprise me that the ins. would deny this kid if he was speeding. as such, his life is probably basically over financially for the next 10 years, provided he gets a six figure income. lower than that, even longer.

It's hard to believe that things are so absolutely opposite right next door in Germany, where 40-50kph over (on an appropriate freeway) is something like a 25 euro fine. I'm not saying I don't believe you, it's just mind-boggling that there's anyplace even more Nazi than America about arbitrary speed enforcement.


Yep.

The colleague who told me the sotry about getting ganked for 1600 CHF said exactly that... he got the same ticket in munich for 35 euros.

i got a ticket... on a scooter.... doing 58 in a 50kph zone. 120 CHF. (100 euros) when i shared this information the guys at the table all said "lucky you had that 2kph under, otherwise there wouldve probably been another 0 on that ticket".

This is one of the hardest things for germans who come down here to get used to: the terrible granny driving. And, if you're over a certain amount above the speed limit, the fine isnt fixed, rather, a % of your income. This is so if Sheikh Hamad al ibn hamad bin sasasfrass in Geneva on the way to the oil summit blows past a speed cam doing 120 in a 50kph zone, they can milk his ass for enough money that it causes dipolomatic incidents involving embassys.

In related real news, recently in a tabloid was the report of a swedish billionaire's son doing 260kph on the Olten-Bern autobahn in some sweet top of the line limited edition mercedes . They confiscated his car.

Switzerland: Europe's Singapore.

Its only invalid if he was speeding. And what are the chances of that?
