American cops appear to be more forgiving.
Last year I got caught speeding in NH and the guy looked at my papers and then said: "Ok, I let you go this time." and I thought what's this? Can he do this? Do I have to do some bribing now? Then he said again: "OK, I LET you GO this time." Then I thought well maybe I just say: 'Thank you.' and happy he was and off I went.
(Since in Switzerland police officers can't do this. They have to obey the law if you speed, you pay no matter what.)
Here you also have to pay no matter what.
A big difference is that the max speed limit in Switzerland is 130 or something.Here it is 100.. There are also 500 automatic speed cameras,and thats much for 4 million people.
Driving through a red light here is 5200 kr(800$)...
