Norway King escapes fine for speeding [/siz] OSLO (Reuters) - Norway's King Harald has been caught speeding in his car but will escape a fine due to royal immunity, a Norwegian daily has reported. Verdens Gang said on Saturday that King Harald was stopped while driving his private car at a speed of 70 km (44 miles) per hour near Gol, a town in southern Norway, in a zone where the speed limit was 60 km per hour. He will not pay any fine because Norway's 1814 constitution grants the monarch blanket immunity from prosecution for any crime or misdemeanour. An ordinary citizen would be fined about 1,000 crowns (85 pounds) for the infringement. Gee, blanket immunity?
