Imagine getting a speeding ticket with a $58,000 fine attached.

That's what 61-year-old Finnish businessman Reima Kuisla is facing after he was recently pulled over near Helsinki, where fines are calculated by income. To make matters worse, he was only doing 64 in a 50 mph zone—breaking the speed limit, yeah, but hardly reenacting a scene from Furious 7.

See, the way Finland looks at it, a fine only serves as a deterrent if paying the fine, you know, hurts. So it has a calculation that takes into account someone's income and expenses and then spits out an amount that will presumably make the person think twice about speeding again. For Mr. Kuisla, whose 2013 income was $7 million, his fine turned out to be more than the average American household income.
