Ouch! That is one stiff fine. The max speeding ticket in these parts is 480 bucks. That's an "excessive speeding" charge which is 40+ kmh over the posted limit although, at 300 kmh, there would be a bucketfull of other charges and fines to go along with it.

Maybe it's 6.500 and 00 stands for the eyes of the policeman when he saw the speed :)

360$ fine would make me a pedestrian for the rest of my life:)

The next question is how the penalty will be enforced. Swiss road, Swedish driver... how will the Swiss authorities compel him to pay the £650,000 / $1,000,000 fine?

If there is any way of getting money the Swiss will find a way.

Where is Haro when you need him?

I don't know - the Swiss are well aware of cuckoo clocks.
