In America usually when you go to court one can negotiate/plea bargain with the prosecutor to pay more fine for a non moving violation
I thought we were talking about MOVING violations (speeding) here to keep the roads safer in Poland.
And that is not true where I live, very very seldom is there room for negotiations on traffic fines.
If Finland sets fines according to income, does everyone still get the same amount of points ?
Like Roger stated, the fine was secondary, it's the points that get expensive.
Your insurance increases every time you get points for the following three years for everyone.
When you get enough points your drivers license gets terminated.
It's called forcing people to become RESPONSIBLE & ACCOUNTABLE no matter what your income is.
A person with a big income is just as likely to kill someone by breaking the law as a poor person.
Points is what levels that out to get ALL bad drivers off the road.
