Short 123 km/ten 30 zone – gets DKK 1,800 in the stall

A 23-year-old driver swerved so hard that he got away with a smaller fine than all other drivers otherwise face for this kind of offence.

At home, he would have lost his choir card and car. Just as a stay in a prison cell had been waiting.

But in Sweden, this kind of crazy driver gets away much cheaper. An almost frighteningly good example is the 23-year-old man whom the police in the town of Eslöv, located in central Scania, measured to be driving 123 km/h.

So in a 30 zone. And here a special Swedish rule, which has been in force since October 2006, comes into force.

If you as a motorist drive more than 50 km/h too fast in a 30 zone, instead of a fine of 4,000 Swedish kroner, you will receive a daily fine. In that case, the amount will depend on the driver's annual income.

For the 23-year-old, the fine means that he does not have to pay 2,800 Swedish kroner, equivalent to 1,800 Danish kroner, for the speeding offence.

– Such is the legal practice, said the prosecutor in the case immediately after the verdict to the 23-year-old driver, according to Skånska Dagbladet .

The prosecution chose not to appeal the decision. But the principle of day stalls is already hotly debated in the Swedish public.

In 2018, Riksdag member Boriana Åberg (M) put forward a proposal to abolish the daycare principle. Her argument was that it would give criminals who, on paper, have very little or no income, an unfair discount. A majority in the Riksdag, however, voted down the proposal.

At home, things are immediately different. In fact, the current SVM government is considering whether the rules for crazy rides should be further tightened. Read more about it here .
