RTFA - he was going 85mph, which was reported as being 35mph over the limit (in non-american terms, he was going 137km/h in an 80km/h zone, 57km/h over). In Canada, going about 100-110 in an 80 zone is pretty normal, but a cop on a bad day will nail you for a couple hundred bucks. OTOH, there's a 'magic number', which happens to be 50km/h over the posted limit. Get caught doing that, you lose your car, your license and get slapped with a $10,000 fine. So, a Ferrari Testarossa goes for about $250,000 plus taxes, shipping etc., meaning a final price tag over 300 grand. He'd have lost his $300,000 car, had to pay a fine (granted it's chump change for him) and he loses his license, making the fine he got about even with what would happen in Canada for the same thing
