Swiss efficiency

I've long been used to the fabulous efficiency of the Swiss... Secluded in their mountainous Shangri-La, they've had centuries to dream up new means of efficacious precision. After a recent trip to Davos (and subsequent use of the autobahn at excessive speeds to make a flight back to Moscow), I personally experienced an outstanding example of the results of this reverie when I received a speeding ticket (via NY, no less) for exceeding the speed limit by 1km/h!

Apparently I have to pay the princely sum of CHF 40 for going 51km/h in a 50 zone...

At least the Swiss accept payment by credit card.
