My first speeding ticket

I knew I was in for it on our trip back from Grindelwald when a camera in Luzern flashed me. I didn't know how fast I was going since I was, sadly, accelerating at the time to keep up with traffic. I was certain the ticket would be a big one.

Well, last Friday I received my ticket. And I think our car's speedometer may be off because it wasn't that bad!

According to the ticket I was going 88 in an 80. Subtracting the 5 km/h cushion allowed by the Swiss, I was only 3 km/h over the speed limit. This equaled a 20 CHF fine.

So definitely not the huge fine we were expecting. And I still only have one ticket to Brian's two. Yay!
