DUI Fine $71,000

Drunk Driving Carries $71,000 Fine in Norway

OSLO, Norway – A well-to-do woman of Oslo secured herself a $71,000 fine by crashing into three parked cars, giving the police a made-up name, punching one police officer, and yelling insults at other
officers.

The incident, which happened in Aug. 2003, resulted in her arrest. Police stated that the woman had drunk the equivalent of a little more than two bottles of wine.

Her blood alcohol level, measured by police, was 0.2-ten times the legal maximum for the country of Norway.

Because Norwegian courts use the convicted individual’s salary as a basis for the fine, this wealthy businesswoman was fined $71,000. Her yearly income was $860,000. She also spent 25 days in jail.

It is the highest drunk driving fine ever for Norway.
