The police deny wrongdoing in speeding fines of 10 million kroner

Danish speed booths can seem violent. However, they pale in comparison to the punishment Connor Cato has received for driving 145 km/h in the US state of Georgia.

Connor Cato was supposed to be short 90 km/h, but he was caught at 145 km/h.

Speeding on a larger scale is foreseen. But Connor Cato still stands out when it comes to penalties.

The American driver faces a fine of 1.48 million dollars, which converted to Danish kroner is 10 million.

The New York Post writes that.

Cato was fined for speeding on a road in the US state of Georgia on September 2, 2023. According to the police, he was measured at exactly 145 km/h in a 90-zone.

Immediately after Connor Cato was given the nod, he allied himself with a lawyer. The police in the city of Savannah, where the driver was speeding, do not believe that the speed ticket is a mistake.

The reason for the police rejection is rather bizarre, but is due to Georgia law. Motorists who are caught driving more than 56 km/h too fast will receive a so-called 'super speed ticket' – a super speed booth.

Such an offense requires the motorist to appear in person in a courtroom to account before a judge.

– The amount of the fine is temporary. The speeding offender must appear in court to have the case settled.

– The system always sets the amount to 999,999,999 dollars plus any other costs. The only way to get the fine brought down is to subsequently appear in court, explains a spokesman for the police.

The actual sentence awaiting Connor Cato is, fortunately for him, much smaller. If no one is injured, which the story does not mention, the penalty is usually a fine of 1,000 dollars, which corresponds to 6,900 Danish kroner.

It is actually worse to be taken for a crazy carousel in Denmark. Recently, despite protest, a 60-year-old man had to hand in both his choir card and the keys to Denmark's most popular car. Read more about the case here .
