Finland. Ill health causes 20% of all traffic accidents according to figures from the National Traffic Police, calling for more intensive monitoring of conditions likely to impair driving ability. Also, a man has been fined £80,000 after being caught driving at 77kph in a 50kph zone. Like in Switzerland, speeding fines are based on the wealth of the driver. Netherlands. Two thirds of local councils earn less than expected from parking with some even loss making. Hengelo for instance will lose €2m this year. The shortfall isn’t just due to the recession but internet shopping too. Expect price rises but also the withdrawal of pay-by-the-minute deals. Latvia. Over 80 drivers have been caught attempting to bribe police officers so far in 2013, a sharp increase on previous years. In the same period of 2011 just 26 people were caught out. The going rate is apparently 20LVL (£24) for speeding, 5LVL for running a red light and 100LVL for drink driving. BNN does not speculate on the reasons for the increase.
