Car Owner Responsible for Speeding?

The Swedish traffic safety organization is calling for a change in the law which makes car owners responsible for speeding or highway accidents - if it cannot be proven who was driving the car at the time.

As it is now, the car owner can insist that somebody else was at the driver's wheel at the time - and that he can't be held responsible for any crime.
