Axel - not all places have that way of fines. Most countries have fixed fine amounts. In some places you can 'gather' points. When you reach a high enough number of points, you hand over your license.

Well looks like someone was thinking of me Max, this from the blog: :D
Another feature is worth mentioning - displaying current road speed limit in Route Advisor, similar as it's available in common car GPS devices. Our Route Advisor tries to be even smarter about it - it will show *truck specific* speed limits - our game is about trucks after all. So limits for normal cars must be in some places capped by the country's truck speed maximum allowed. This feature is optional, so you can track speed limits on your own if you prefer, and hide speed limit Route Advisor icon in game Options.

Yep. We have the same thing here, but with the incrementally increasing fines as well. In fact, because a bicycle is considered a "vehicle" by the California Vehicle Code, if you get enough tickets while riding a bicycle to get to the same point where you would lose your license as a result of getting tickets in a car, you can still lose your drivers license even though you were not driving a car...
You can call me Ax

cameras have cca 10% tolerance, so they detect offense on 88kmh and more.
Just a suggestion, but it may have been helpful to people that don't know about the different limits in Europe (like myself)
to state what the "Corrected speed limit" was. When I saw that in the patch notes, I thought the limits had been wrong before
and were corrected to 90 km/h, not that a limit of 80 km/h had been enforced.

Well, after the next update, we'll always know what's the speed limit on the roads that we'll be driving on...
... I hope the small advisor get's updated... I don't like the big vanilla ones... :)

It would be good if they also put the speed in the on board GPS, as I have the Route Adviser off when driving,
as I like to try to drive as realistic as possible.

Maybe some special display of the onboard computer like those "sign recognisers" you get with new cars....

Well the law in Croatia says 80 km/h for the truck.... however you can drive 90 km/h because police doesn't write a tickets for that. Same goes for the cars; when driving on highway, you are not allowed to go above the 130 km/h by the law. The police, in this case, won't write a ticket for going cca 150 km/h

No WONDER I keep getting speeding fines! I thought those speed limit signs applied to me and my big rig :lol:

Guess I was on the same road as Reece and doing 90 Kph. The sigh is what I obey NOT what an individual tells me. If Germany, Etc. has different speeds for trucks than posted in game THEN put up some TRUCK speed limit signs as I'm sure in real life they are along highways.

Those fines kind of hurt especially when you think you are doing right.

Bottom line I hope in the next patch ( 1.11.x ? ) this speed limit thing is corrected.
