Long time ago, I got a ‘friend’ who worked in the Customs and he told me about their codes.Â One day, I was in the car with him and a police stopped him because he beat the red-light.Â The above phrase got him off within minutes.Â No need to haggle.
Now, the other day, remember that I mentioned my hubby got a traffic summons for obstructing traffic in busy (heh) Kuala Terengganu?Â He wanted to settle it when in KT but the traffic section was closed for two days.Â Upon returning, he had asked his staff to pay for him.Â But after a few trips, the summon has not been paid.
The fine for obstructing traffic is RM70 and if you are a cheapskate and wants to grovel at the feet of the inspectors, running from department to department, chasing after the elusive men in blue, you may get a discount ofÂ RM20. Trust me, pay RM70, don’t shorten your life.
So, the summon wasn’t paid yet.Â And the new discounted rates that is supposed to deter bad people like us from bribing the police has been announced.Â I think it is a good move.Â Most regular fines are now RM50 only.Â That means RM20 is the ‘going rate’ now, hor?
No, ek.Â What it means now is – If you get summoned, just take it, go to the police station and pay it!Â Don’t ever offer bribes.Â Bad, bad, bad.Â It is more thrilling to deny a bad cop from getting our money and it is lots more noble to give your money in the legal way.
According to The Star,Â 56% of the people they interviewed do not agree to the reduce rates.Â They say it will cause more road accidents, reckless driving etc.Â I tell you, 56% of the anal retentive people, get real, those reckless drivers who are out to kill themselves and the public will not care about the summons.Â They are just out to die, whatever it costs.
ItÂ is those small fries like us 44% who will gladly take the summon andÂ pay it in the legal way.Â And I betÂ RM20Â sharedÂ among two mata-kias is no longer attractive and may we have a cleanerÂ police force.Â And yeah, don’tÂ bitch about police accepting bribes, it is us, the public who offered it in the first place.Â If we don’t give, how can they take it?
Majulah 5xmom untuk negara!Â ROTFLMAO.
