Driving Drunk in Norway is Costly

The Norwegian courts base criminal fines on the amount of money the offender has. Recently a 49 year old gentleman from Kristiansand, Norway, was fined $109,000.00 for driving under the influence. The Story. Can you imagine trying to adjust such a system to be used in the US? I think it's a great idea but I'm afraid that our most frequent offenders are flat broke to start with.

Plus, meter maids (meter men?) should be allowed to kick people who park in front of hydrants, or in no-stopping zones.
