Sure looks like KOW badges on the shoulder, and the buildings look to be Phnom Penh. Bonus points if anyone knows exactly where this intersection is?
Is this a common (bribing at intersections) thing now?

In Jamaica police would step out of the jungle looking for 'anyting illegal mon' and scare the shit out of you....
i learned the useful lesson....keep your high in your head mon...cause they can't search your brains...
In the USA when I was young you had roads like the famous route 66 that went through small towns.
the speed limit would drop drastically and you would get popped before you could slow down...you would have to either pay the cop in cash or once we had to follow him to the courthouse...at night and put the cash in a lock box...the old speed trap...
paying a few bucks to get down the road is nothing new or unique to Cambodia.
On the other hand, did you ever try to bargain your fine with a western traffic cop ?
It used to be all relative in the west. Cops are human, too. Go with ‘I’m big and important’ bargaining and the cop will want to stick it to you even more. Be sincerely sorry (or seriously lost), and the cop might just give you a warning and let you go.Anchor Moy wrote:On the other hand, did you ever try to bargain your fine with a western traffic cop ?
Nowadays, cops are being replaced by the damn cameras. Human factor (unfortunately) gone. Ticket is just mailed to your home. There is only pay.
