    A Brussels resident has received the maximum fine of €16,000 from the Brussels police court for speeding while ignoring a driving ban.

    The young man was caught driving at a speed of 47 kilometres per hour in a 30-kilometre zone, reports Bruzz.

    In addition to the €16,000 fine, the accused received a suspended sentence of 90 days in prison, reports SudInfo.

    The heavy sentence was due to the fact that the young Brussels resident had been caught ignoring a driving ban once before.
