$1,000,000 Speeding Ticket

The yet to be identified, but certainly unhappy diver, is facing a world record million dollar speeding ticket. If imposed it would be more than three times the current record holder.

"A Swedish motorist caught driving at 290km/h (180mph) in Switzerland could be given a world-record speeding fine of SFr1.08m ($1m; £656,000), prosecutors say.

The 37-year-old, who has not been named, was clocked driving his Mercedes sports car at 170km/h over the limit.

Under Swiss law, the level of fine is determined by the wealth of the driver and the speed recorded.
