    SAO PAULO, Brazil -- Brazilian police reportedly have caught up with a motorist who owes the equivalent of nearly $2 million in unpaid traffic fines. Folha OnLine said police stopped a 36-year-old man on Wednesday night and discovered he has been ticketed nearly 1,000 times since 2001, the year he bought his current car.

    Folha OnLine said the accumulated fines for speeding and running red lights total 3.4 million reals ($1.9 million).

    The man said he never received the tickets because he was always too busy to register the car in his name.

    Folha OnLine said the car is worth about $6,600 and was impounded. It will be auctioned unless the man comes up with the money he owes.
    Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.

    I would have thought any South American country would have lent him a cigarette and a blindfold for that kind of money.
