ST. GALLEN, Switzerland – A Swiss court has slapped a wealthy speeder with a chalet-sized fine — a full $290,000.

Judges at the cantonal court in St. Gallen, in eastern Switzerland, based the record-breaking fine on the speeder's estimated wealth of over $20 million.

A statement on the court's Web site says the driver — a repeat offender — drove up to 35 miles an hour (57 kilometers an hour) faster than the 50-mile-an-hour (80-kilometer-an-hour) limit.

Court clerk Heidi Baumann-Becker said Thursday the unidentified driver can appeal the decision, handed down in November, to the Swiss supreme court.

The Blick daily newspaper in Zurich reported the fine was more than twice the previous Swiss record of about $107,000.

That's a pretty big speeding ticket. Approximately 1.5% of his money.

actually that is how it goes there. i have family that lives in the st. gallon canton, and i actually saw their fines. boni's uncle went 4km/h over the limit (2.48 mph) and he got a fine that was above 100CHF. now from what i saw how the dollar is, it would be around 80$
