$200 Fine For Dying
If the risk of death isn't enough of a deterrent for not touching the wires, I doubt the additional $200 fine will be.
Maybe people just don't take the words "instant death" as seriously as they used to and after several morons touched the wires, the Newcastle Tramway Authority decided the threat of $200 would be the perfect amount of incentive.
Also if the authorities do find your corpse are they just going to hope you have at least $200 in your wallet or will they just forward a bill to your next of kin?
SERIOUSLY WTF PEOPLE??????
