Interesting Fact # 904 - Traffic

According to the German Government, as of 1st January 2008, over 8 million Germans were registered traffic offenders.

(Their response? Well they're going to raise the amount of the fine for traffic offences, in some cases more than double the amount. For example, anyone caught driving through a red light will have to pay €200 instead of the current €50, if the lights were on red for longer than a second. Anyone caught driving under the influence will be slapped with a €3,000 fine. What a great way to raise more money for the German banks!)
