Traffic Rules

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

And so what happens to the poor officer who stops the ‘wrong’ car or moto?
Don't worry, Nuke
they never do that
something in the Khmer genes makes it impossible, apparently
They could, of course, have a junior officer complain that a senior officer isn't doing their job properly, and see how that pans out... Perhaps the junior officer could school the senior officer on how they should do their job? Apparently, that seems to work in the school system!!

Nothing will change until all vehicles have number pates, all traffic lights have number plate recognition cameras and there is a postal system for fines to be sen tout by computer like in the banana repuiblic of boris (aka uk). Even then some Cambiodian will work out a way to bribe the computer!
TBF I have seen police stopping people for going the wrongway on st51 and 63 a few times this year, and a road block on 51 at around 11.30 pm

And this fuckin bollox about ignoring lights because turning right is exactly that BOLLOX
Right on red is logical, keeps traffic moving more efficiently, saves gas and is more environmentally friendly, posses little risk, etc, etc. Right on red is great.

I never did understand how the Brit's government managed to convince them that it's for their own good to be under constant video surveillance...
Do you think the parents of baby boomers whined so much when the boomers started changing society? And yet the whiney ones like to call young people "snowflakes." Hmm...

Would you be worried about surveillance if you had something to hide or be guilty about? It doesn't bother me in the slightest. They can watch me all they like. If I am doing nothing wrong, why be worried? I'm no tin-hatter and could care less that video cameras track everything I do. I'd be more worried about what cellphone carriers can see what I'm up to than whether a camera records me taking a leak in an alley.

Sadly britain is still afeudal society and the majority have been brainwashed to believe only prickls born with silver spoons in their mouths and who attend public schools with weird rituals are able to lead the country. the british working class almost willinglt let themselves be triusered like subs allow doms to poiss on them :-(
