A recent article in Germany’s “Der Spiegel” (link) gives an example of what can happen if you are caught driving over the speed limit in Switzerland. A German citizen was caught driving his Mercedes on a motorway in the canton of Aargau, at a speed of 215 km/hr. The Swiss authorities seized his car and will sell it (the money will go to the state treasury). Not only, but the driver faces a court case, risking from 1 to 4 years inside, plus of course the financial costs of the court case (which could be around Euros 35,000).
