STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Tired of parking fines and speeding tickets? A Swedish company offers insurance against both, claiming to be the first in the field.

Swedish drivers who register with the Bisso company at the Web site www.bisso.se and pay an annual fee of 850 crowns ($112) are covered against three speeding tickets a year, as long as they are not more than 30 km an hour (19 miles an hour) above the limit.

For an extra fee, drivers can buy cover against parking fines. Fines in Sweden, which has one of the best road safety records in the world, range from 800 to 2000 crowns for speeding and 425 to 700 crowns for parking offences.

"We believe drivers are under economic pressure and there is no room in household budgets to pay fines. We offer economic protection," said Dan Glimmeras, head of marketing at Bisso.

He told Reuters insuring against speeding fines was not illegal, but repeat offenders could still lose their license.

Several thousand people had signed up for the insurance since May, Glimmeras said.

I would gladly pay for something like that for my motorcycle. 25-30 MPH in this town is unbearably slow on my bike. :( I would also pay an additional $150 for insurance for blown up vehicles, caused by the 3 mini side winders and handle bar mounted mini gun on my bike I use for bad drivers. :p :p :shock: :sly: :rofl:
