Driving in Malaysia: why you mustn’t bribe Malaysian traffic cops
This is the second time I’ve received a warning from Malaysian friends NOT to offer bribes to Malaysian traffic cops.
Remember the case of the Singapore businessman who got into trouble for offering a bribe?
Read on and find out why.
WARNING : DON’T OFFER DUIT KOPI FROM NOW ON!
If you have ever paid or are thinking of paying ‘ Coffee Money’ when stopped for traffic or other offences,
DON’T EVER Do This Again.
The traffic department has recently started a campaign to be rid of corruption.
Every Officer on duty will be rewarded with RM100.00 if they report each case of bribery to the department.
This is how they do (trick you into) it.
They will note down the details of your IC/MyKad, and ask you how you want to settle ( ‘Macam mana nak selesai?’)
If you indicate yes or even offer to give them any money, they will report the incident by rejecting your ‘Kopi
Money’ and get the RM100.00 instead as an incentive for their integrity and ‘Honest’ pubicity.
This means that You will end up having a summon issued to you and perhaps a charge for bribery.
SO DON’T PAY DUIT KOPI AGAIN, especially if you hope to go free with a lesser amount of money compared to the fine.
Even if you want to pay over RM200, the Officers would rather have a ‘good’ name than to take your kopi money.
Just beware of their trick because the cops are now accumulating ‘cookies’ points for their promotion and pay
increment – with your help if possible.
They should have done this to stop corruption long time ago… But anyway it’s better late than never, right?
SPREAD THIS MESSAGE TO EDUCATE OTHERS ON THIS NEW ANTI-RASUAH POLICY!
AND THIS APPLIES TO JPJ OFFICERS ALSO!
