Canada Introduces $10,000 Speeding Ticket

Canada has introduced its highest speeding ticket and one of North America's most expensive. Anyone daring enough to zip down the road at 50 km/h (31 MPH) over the posted limit can now be dinged with a $10,000 penalty for "street racing" and up to six months in jail. Driving down a lone country road with no other car in sight? Even though you won't be running the risk of injuring other motorists, the fine still applies "even if the accused motorist is driving alone on an otherwise empty road."
