Pensioner chooses prison over fine
A 75 year old pensioner in canton Thurgau decided to go to prison for week and not pay a CHF 700 traffic fine – and says he enjoyed it and would do it again.
He spent the week at a prison in Frauenfeld.
He says he had his own cell where he watched television, read the papers, played Sudoku – and he could even smoke.
His family were not as thrilled as him at his decision – but he has no regrets - he even says the food was quite good.
