Why woman was hit with a $3,635 fine for going just 6km over the speed limit: ‘A bit excessive’

A woman was blindsided after receiving an eye-wateringly expensive fine for driving just 6km/h over the speed limit, all because she was driving a company car at the time.

Jane Artigan, who lives in Melbourne, posted her stunned reaction to the $3,635 fine she got in the mail to TikTok.

The former local council candidate questioned the logic behind the fee in the caption of her post, writing, ‘a bit excessive, no?’

Many respondents in the comments section pointed out that the exorbitant fee was due to the fact that she was driving a company car.

Drivers caught speeding in a corporate vehicle are charged with a body corporate infringement notice, which results in a higher fee that will cost at least $3,000.

‘You obviously drive the company car. Put down who is driving and will be a standard fine,’ wrote one user.
