At the end of April, on my way home from work, I got caught for speeding.
Which was fair enough, I was driving 9 kilometers (approx. 5.5 miles) faster per hour than I was allowed to. Quite a hefty fine, though: 1500 SEK (214 USD), where I don’t even dare to wonder what I would have to pay had I been going faster (still, as opposed to Finland, ticket amount is not based on annual income here in Sweden…).
I was caught by a speeding camera, and the interesting part was the letter I got home with a picture of me speeding:
If you look closely, you can see that I am, in an overly curious manner, looking out at something. What the hell was I looking at?
Secondly, believe it or not, the big white square over the passenger’s seat is not my doing; the picture came like that. So, when Fredrika saw it, she didn’t bring up the speeding or the ticket – she asked who I had had sitting next to me! To her, it was a cover-up with a secret passenger, and she demanded to get to know who it was!
So, thank you dear police, for creating these kind of conspiracy implications and possibilities…
