Don't think it will catch on with the same level of popularity as forcing a poor person to sell their car to cover their parking ticket.

All collected I had to pay $14,650 for my DUI.  That's more than just the fine though, that's the fine, court costs, lawyer, probation, DUI school, MADD program, community service, and license reinstatement.

This is a good system.  It should be just as inconvenient in terms of money and time for a rich person as it is for a poor person.

Anyhow, it'll be a cold day in hell before such a system would be implemented in the US, especially since it seems like we're living in the era of "f--k all of you, I got mine."

There is one Scandinavian country that calculates your speeding ticket fine based on your income. Something like a days wages. I personally think this is a great idea. A fixed fine won't deter the rich unless it is so high that it would bankrupt the average working person. If I remember correctly some had to pay a $300,000 traffic fine.

Fines that are scale to income is a very sensible way to balance the law and not make them disproportionately punish the poor.

Not high enough to discourage bad behavior.  She could afford one of those per month and now blink.  Denmark does it better - actually pegs the fine to income and B.A.C. to both make it hurt and make it hurt more the more dangerously drunk you were.

This Danish pro-soccer player paid a $147k fine for DUI
https://www.upi.com/Soccer-player-pay​s​-147000-fine-for-DUI/19041362577007/
"Drunken-driving fines are calculated by dividing the offender's annual salary by 25, then multiplying it by their blood-alcohol level, which in Bendtner's case was 0.175 percent, the Post reported. Bendtner earns about $175,000 per month. He called his day in court Tuesday the worst day of his life."

yeah, traffic tickets are a common path for poor people into the system.

Kid gets a ticket, can't pay it,  doesn't drive, can't get a job...

When I was young I had a few traffic tickets that after they became warrants were close to $5k to pay off.
 
2017-11-17 11:58:21 AM  
This is why legal fines should be a % of your annual income weighted by personal wealth.

Came here to say this.  I'd say based on the amount of free cash the average person actually has vs the amount you now have to pay to get around a DUI, it's instant bankruptcy.  Law enforcement types actually brag about this.

One of the things I greatly admire about Scandanavian systems of law is that the fines are graduated by income level meaning there is at least an attempt to make the law fall equally on rich and poor alike (the notion of the "marginal cost of money" makes this actually impossible but it's a decent attempt\)

Saw a joke here on FARK that is apparently culturally accurate:
"There once was a Norwegian woman who loved her husband so much she almost told him."

Apparently a, shall we say, 'reticent' people when it comes to emotions.

I suspect she is what I might call a "hot mess" and every sane man should stay away, unless you like the crazy for a short bit of time...  and even then, if you really think about it, you'd still avoid.

This, Not to mention the 2 layered justice system, and the idolization of the "job creator" class.


Middle/Lower class in this country are basically to the point of "Thank you sir, may I have another?".

It kinda sounds like a fine should be a deterrent.
I do, however, have a sense that someone is going to be in here soon and say that other things should be on a scale as well, like milk.

We'll end up where whether you make money or you don't, whether you save money or you don't, it's going to end up the same.

The multi-billion dollar DUI processing industry is the reason self-driving cars will never be fully embraced by the law. Tens of thousands of people's jobs depend on fleecing people who have two beers.

It would make the people who collect the tolls really answer whether speeding tickets etc are a deterrent or a revenue source.

It was indeed tied to her income. She has relatively (compared to her assets) little income. They increased the fine to account for her wealth. I know these things because I am a Swiss Judge. Or because I skimmed the article.
