Fined 1.3 million euros per person: “If you don’t pay, you will go to court”

On September 2, 2023, Connor Cato was speeding home on a highway in Georgia, USA. The New York Post reports that the man was pulled over by police for driving at 145 km/h on a road with a 90 km/h limit.

Weeks later, his fine finally arrived. It was expected. However, it was a big surprise when he discovered the amount of the fine: 1.3 million euros ($1.4 million). Connor Cato told himself it was a mistake and that the number was too high. But they called the authorities and warned, “Either you pay the fine or go to court on December 21”.

However, Georgia law states that those who violate the speed limit by more than 25 mph will automatically appear in court. In addition, the amount of the fine should not actually exceed 1000 dollars. “The programmers who designed the penalty software used the penalty software as much as possible. Connor Cato was passing.

So the driver will have to go to court for his offense but not have to pay such fine.
