# Does going too fast justify things?

A driver is caught going through a red light. The driver claims to the judge that the color she actually saw was green $$\left(\nu = 5.60 \times 10^{14} \text{ Hz} \right)$$ and not red $$\left(\nu _{0} = 4.80 \times 10^{14} \text{ Hz}\right)$$ because of the doppler effect. The judge accepts this explanation and instead fines her for speeding at the rate of \$$$1$$ for each $$\text{ km/h}$$ she exceeded the speed limit of $$80 \text{ km/h.}$$ What is the fine?
