2023.06.09 22:27 autotldr Finnish businessman handed ÔéČ121,000 speeding ticket

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 64%. (I'm a bot)
LONDON - A wealthy man in Finland has been handed a whopping €121,000 fine for speeding.
Res Wiklöf - one of Finland's richest men - was driving on Finland's Åland Islands on the Järsövägen headed towards the Åland Island capital, Mariehamn, when police caught him driving approximately 50 mph in a 30 mph zone.
Under Finland's "Day-Fine" system, an individual's income is a key determinant in the size of the fine they are subsequently issued with by law enforcement.
Further, under the Finnish "Day-Fine" system, the more a driver is over a speed limit, the higher the number "Day fines" received.
It is not the first speeding fine Wiklöf has been issued.
Other massive fines from Finland are former Nokia Boss, Anssi Vanjokki, who was issued a €116,000 for speeding on his motorbike, and Remia Kuisla, a Finnish businessman who was fined €54,000 for driving 64 mph in a 50 mph zone.

2023.06.09 21:17 tessthismess New Development on College Campus - Where Parking???

On the sub for my former college (Purdue), someone posted a proposed change for this kinda strip mall on the edge of campus.
Here's the post I wasn't even looking for /fuckcars stuff but skimming the comments 1/3 to 1/2 are about parking. Here's what it currently looks like, for reference
For reference, the open area with trees and stuff currently is a flat parking lot (with very strict/aggressive towing practices, which I know from experience).
It's just telling people's reaction to a nice green area is "What about parking???"

2023.06.09 20:13 AutismToTheLetter Why do I get obsessed about red traffic lights and traffic rules in general after a traffic fine? Warning: Schizophrenic talking.

"Traffic jams are necessary and safe." Is this opinion a delusion, a disorganized thought or it is real?
Speeding kills. So fatal accidents are less likely to happen in traffic jams where speeds are near 0. It is also safe for pedestrians to traverse freely through the temporary made carpark.
Traffic jams are a natural symptom of humanity's lifestyle inflation of having more speed, more space and more productivity. They act as a necessary control mechanism to stop our unsustainable economic growth.
Stop means Stop, Do you understand, mr intruder.
I must stop there until light changes to green, even if it means a long time or indefintely. You never know if a parked car or car from the blind spot suddenly lights up and accelerates fast on the green. Remember, safety is the top priority and we all must obey the traffic law.
Red light says: "I am the red light. I deserve respect. I command the safety of physical movement. Don't pass this boundary or else you might die... You must stop. You must slow down. you should idle. you should be delayed. you should waste time. This is so meaningful, a quest for testing patience and letting go of goals and disappointments."
It is also better to be late rather than be in a hurry to a destination.
... Change happened... after I got external validation for a manifesto like statement from an anti-car subreddit, I started to cross against the red with no traffic, believing I should not be sheep or coward to the system.
"Jaywalkers should not be fined when the drivers has seen them and can stop in time.
Edit on title: "Jaywalkers should not be fined when... it is clear to cross". "

2023.06.09 04:20 Strength-InThe-Loins Counting cars in the bike lane, day 88: On a clear day you can see forever

The morning count was 4, which I guess is pretty normal now. (It's going to take a LONG time to really get used to morning counts that are usually like 4, as opposed to the like 25 they were for the first few months I counted.) The lane was clear, too; there are still some barrels and barriers left over from the painting job, mostly out of the way; there are a few trouble spots that would only take a few minutes to clear up, so maybe I should do that one of these days.
The evening count was 8, which I guess is, etc. Visibility had improved since yesterday (it looked like a standard overcast day, rather than like something in a sandstorm scene from a sci-fi movie), and so I was treated to a magnificent vista of the vast space stretching out between cars number 1 and 2.
I took an alternate route after the usual 1.2mile stretch, during which I happened to pass through an area I very seldom visit, where there were so many cars parked in the bike lane that I felt instantly at home.
During my lunch break I had to run a few unexpected errands. I hadn't brought my bike lock with me, so I decided to go by CitiBike, because CitiBikes are pretty cool. And yet not a single one of the bikes at the two docking stations I tried would release, so I ended up walking instead.

2023.06.09 02:30 ShadowFalcon1 Consider creating a Lemmy version of this subreddit.

With the recent price change of Reddits API, a lot of 3rd parties apps are not going to make it (including one I use, Infinity), as such I will likely stop using Reddit altogether. Moderation of subreddits may also become harder.
Lemmy is a free and open source alternative. (fuckcars is already there and has quite a few people in it). I'd love to see this community over there.
To be clear there is not currently a community that matches this one. I am hoping the moderators of this subreddit will see this and start one on there.
Edit: Added the link about the API changes. Edit 2: added link to lemmy and a clarification.

2023.06.08 02:46 DiceMaster Help understanding the funding of car infrastructure vs. rail infrastructure in the US

Several urbanist Youtube channels I enjoy have claimed that highways and other car infrastructure is subsidized, while rail and transit are funded by riders. I initially took this for granted as true, but now I am finding that it's difficult to verify. I did find this post from this sub, and I do find the Tax Foundation to generally be non-partisan and accurate. However, I also came across this annual report, directly from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, which claims that total highway revenues (federal, state, and local) exceed total highway expenditures, total water and rail revenues roughly match expenditures, and aviation and transit revenues fall short of expenditures.
Does anyone here know what accounts for the discrepancy? Is there some way that both are technically true?

2023.06.07 21:05 maker-127 petition to add pride flag to icon for June

early in the history of fuckcars they had a pride flag in the icon.
and I think I convinced them to remove it.­čśů. (don't quote me but I'm too lazy to search thru my post history to verify)
but n e ways it would be cool to add the pride flag back to the subreddit for at least the month of June.

2023.06.04 20:08 MSUconservative Unpopular Opinion: Public Transit Advocates and Car Drivers are Natural Allies, FIGHT ME!

As the title says, public transit advocates have a natural ally in car drivers. This subreddit is doing more harm to the cause of promoting public transit than good.
This subreddit is creating a large opposition to public transit by attacking car drivers. Car drivers benefit greatly from public transit due to reduced traffic on the road, and that is the point that should be hammered home if we want to actually create a coalition for promoting public transit in the USA.
I get that hate sells, and there is no better subreddit at promoting hate than fuckcars, but this tactic isn't going to create enough support for public transit when most people in the USA are car drivers.
To this end, I have created another subreddit for promoting public transit without all the judgement or hate: PlanesTrainsandAutos
Join and contribute or don't, I honestly don't care, I've lost hope in making this country a better place to live a long time ago, but nothing makes me more angry than a bunch of ignorant fools turning allies into opposition solely because hate sells.
