How do drivers evaluate fine for different traffic offences? A literature review (English)
A fine is the most common sanction for most traffic offences, but it is only one of several sanction options for society. If one is caught driving without a safety belt, and other similar minor traffic offences, the sanction is always a fine of fixed sum. For minor speeding offences a fixed sum is also charged. Only for excessive speeding a court may adjudge the confiscation of the driving license for a shorter or longer period. For drunken driving fines are not used at all. Instead a monetary fine, i.e. a fine assessed on the basis of the defendant's daily income, will be administered, and if the drunken driving is deemed to be excessive the court may withdraw the driving license for a shorter or longer period. The question is which effect the precise magnitude of a fine has for the prevention of crime. How do drivers evaluate the current fine sums, and when are they felt to be really heavy? The project documented here is a literature study on this topic. It is planned that this literature study shall be followed by a questionnaire survey to a randomly selected population of private car drivers.
