We’ve seen plenty of people arguing with the authorities over various traffic violations. You can either cooperate or argue with them. Most would choose to cooperate as there’s simply no reason to get verbally or physically aggressive.
Unfortunately, some would rather handle the situation emotionally. We’ve seen someone flipping over a JPJ vehicle after getting fined and we’ve also seen a driver trying to escape the police after getting caught committing an obscene act with his girlfriend. This man joins the list of angry drivers who felt that they were being treated unfairly. Here’s the story:
Facebook user Jessi Owen posted a video on the “Isu Terkini Apa Hari Ni” page on Sunday (14th August) that shows a man recording his conversation with a police officer when he was being fined for a traffic violation. However, it was not the fine that upset him the most. Apparently, the man thought that the driver before him should’ve been fined as well.
According to the video, the man was furious and asked the police why he’s the only one being fined when the other driver was let go. The officer clarified that there’s nothing they can do as they’ve only managed to stop him so he has to accept the fine. “Why am I being fined but they’re being let go?” the angry driver asked. The officer explained that they’re just doing their job.
The man then made a snarky remark by saying, “So what you’re saying is that you’re not being fair,” to which the officer responded that it’s not under their jurisdiction on whether something is fair or not. Netizens commented on the video with most disagreeing with the angry driver saying he should’ve just cooperated since he was the one who was caught and not the other driver.
There were also a few netizens that felt the officers should’ve done a better job. It is currently unknown where or when the incident took place and there were no further updates from the Facebook user. Whatever the case, if you’ve been caught red-handed, please do your best to cooperate with the authorities to avoid any unnecessary arguments.
