Nokia boss gets €116,000 speeding ticket

 

Nokia board member Mr Anssi Vanjoki has been ordered to pay Finland's most expensive speeding ticket ever.

He was fined €116,000 euros ($103,500) after he was stopped by police in Helsinki last October, the tabloid daily Ilta Sanomatreported today.

Mr Vanjoki was caught driving 75 kilometres per hour in a 50-kph zone on his motorcycle.

Traffic fines in Finland are proportional to the offender's income. Mr Vanjoki has to pay a fine equal to 14 days of his income in 1999, which was €14 million euros.
