    What should be penalty for 20mph+ over limit speeding?

    A highway patrol car on a good condition 4 lane divided highway with a 70 mph speed limit, no other cars on the highway in a remote area picks up a sole car doing 170 mph heading his way on the other side empty and flat open area 2 lanes. A new Corette ZR 1 designed to go 200 mph. When the officer pulls across the center medium, the ZR1 driver (no passenger) pulls over anticipating being stopped.

    What should the officer do and what should the penalty be?

    Multiple choice, public vote.

    A slap on the back of the head for pulling over and waiting for the cop. At 170 mph, exactly when would that cop have caught her?
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

    A ticket for the full 170

    In other circumstances like racing or if the road was not clear of traffic, the taking of the car and major points on the license

    Jail time, seizure of vehicle.

    100mph over is so ludicrously over the limit you shouldn't be allowed to drive a car again. There's no fixing someone with that little regard for the lives of others. And don't give me this "empty highway" fantasy. You aren't driving on a closed course.

    10% of your last years income. I think this is a European concept but I can't remember which country.
    or
    12 hours in stocks with no food or water. You'll live but you won't speed again.
    or
    one lash of a cane (Singapore style). You'll live but you won't speed again.

    I once passed a cop south of Albuquerque going "P". The needle on my speedometer had passed the limit and was facing the bottom where it said MPH. He never moved off the median.
