    Speeding fines in Hong Kong?

    Well I got caught on my bike doing 83 / 70 zone, which isn't exactly outrageous speeding in my point of view (got the paper in the mail and have to respond with who the driver was). Nevertheless, flashed I was, and I got curious as to what the speeding fines are like here in Hong Kong.

    Any ideas?

    Not even a 3 point penalty offence, I think it's something like HK$320-380.

    for 3 pt deduction, you must be travelling in excess of 15km/hr over the speed limit.... i know... i got one a couple of years ago...it was a $450 fine too.

    just so you know, you get a leeway of 4km/hr....

    Fortunately, I don't know. I got stopped in June for 94km in a 70km zone in Ma On Shan. Haven't gone to get my HK license yet as I need to renew my MC endorsement in the States so I don't have to do the 2 year process in HK. I played stupid gweiloh, rambled on about losing my wallet and not having my license and how I just got the car... and the officer let me go.

    The look on his face was priceless, I don't think he spoke a lot of English and I was chattering like a monkey on speed.

    I'm really going to miss driving in the UK -- politeness, decent driving skills, lane disciple, and the ability to drive at 90 mph (145 kph! Furious driving indeed!) on the motorway all day with little risk of a fine. Plus the company Audi is a much nicer ride than my tatty little HK Mazder.

    No points deducted and a fine of HK$320 only.

    as for the points deduction system, look at the link below.

    Thanks folks for the info! $320 is a very humble fine I'd say!
