5 Cambodian Police Officers VS 1 Angry Motorist with No Helmet in Koh Kong

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

But in the long run, if you were living here, you'd probably piss them off, if they'd stop you all the time and you never gave them any tea money, even though you were breaking the traffic law.
im not a tourist :facepalm: i dont stay in a hotel :facepalm:
when i run the red light he wanted a bribe instead of writing me a ticket to which i refused, when he realised he wasnt getting a bribe he lost interest
the lights on i laughed at his stupid bribe request price and we had a chat n laugh in khmer and he let me on my way

its rare the police bother me at all

not always true ive not paid a fine in over a year after being pulled on numerous occasions here in shv, most recently for lights on and another for running a red light
No, we weren't wrong.

They took pictures of our car's number plate, just because they accused us that we didn't put the belt. We weren't afraid even they carried gun and stood near us because we weren't wrong. While we were talking with police , another car hit our car, but the police didn't stop him and told us they didn't stop that car because we ( owner) not do it. Even they saw what happened to us but they pretended it wasn't their task. It was a bad night!
Did you have to pay them?
No we weren't wrong!

The guy is pretty rude toward the cop.
បើសិនធ្វើចេះ ចេះឲ្យគេកោត បើសិនធ្វើឆោត ឆោតឲ្យគេអាណិត។

If you know a lot, know enough to make them respect you, if you are stupid, be stupid enough so they can pity you.
