For all those who have the need for speed in Denmark, help has arrived. An automobile club is now offering insurance for speeding and parking tickets.

For just 2.50 Danish crowns (33 euro cents) per day, the club will pay up to four speeding tickets and four parking tickets per year, up to a value of 10,000 crowns.

The idea, Fartklubben founder Poul Winther told Danish daily Politiken, is not to give Danes license to put the pedal to the metal, but rather to protect motorists from over-zealous traffic cops.

"We're a solidarity club where each member is jointly liable for one another," he said. "We believe that photo speed traps and parking companies have become pure money machines."

There was also a similar scheme put in place in New Zealand for a group of corporates. I am not sure how it went but as the industry not as regulated its a fair bet that it might still be in existence.

I will check with underwriters about possibility in Australia.

Hi,

We would like to introduce a new insurance product in Hungary.
Could you give me some information about that speed ticket insurances in your countries (if it exists now)?

Thank you very much

I have been looking into it in Australia, I know they used to have a program for fleets in New Zealand but this was something that was done only for work vehicles and if they were caught at under 10km over the limit.

I have been hitting a brick wall here in Australia. With hungry maybe speak to a local Lloyds underwriting agency.
