Speaking of thieving cops, why don't they fleece foreigners who jaywalk and who throw cigarette butts on the ground? That's an easy way to make money.
Are they cigarette butt throwing jaywalkers or two different groups?

Jaywalking isn't illegal, I don't think the concept exists outside of the US.
They should criminalize jaywalking and then just enforce it against foreigners. Easy money.

A couple of weeks ago, I was pulled over by a group of cops outside the railway station after making an illegal left turn off Monivong. One off the cops spoke pretty good English, and we had a chat about family and life in PP. He mentioned coffee money. I knew I had a fifty dollar note and about 3 dollars, I handed over the small amount and didn't show him the $50. He thought I was cleaned out and said don't worry about coffee money, it's OK. All in all a nice friendly guy.

Don't be a dick. The problem is the police not issuing a proper ticket or assessing a proper fine but instead demanding a phone and jewelry and then ordering a solo female to drive to secluded area and demanding $50 from her.
The problem is she couldn't run away and the cops refused to accept a bribe. She didn't like that for once they did their job properly. She was going to wear her helmet, soon, but not yet.

Have you been stopped by traffic police? They almost always ask for collateral so that you don't run away, because people do, we all do, and NKOTB's perfect princess would if she could, too, which is what the police are pro-actively defending themselves against.

The cops fined her $3. This whole rapey scenario you're painting exists only in her head.

You could solve that problem many times by having two wallets. One with dollars in and in your other pocket a wallet with Riel . It will not only get you out of tricky situations with the cops, but also with beggars, bar-girls and family. Makes them feel so guilty about asking for the last 1000 r note in your wallet . I recently had one girl wanted to give me a massage, but when I showed her how much Riel was in my wallet she gave me one for free. She was really surprised when I gave her $5 as I left.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Another way to avoid this issue is by riding a bicycle.
