doing the rounds


Nice patrol car, don't you think? Now, that a closer look at the sticker/decal that's on the back windscreen. It says, "Jangan Rasuah." No Bribery. This is the new campaign that the Police Dept. started last year. It's more for the cops than it is for us laymen. The police here have a very bad reputation for taking bribes. The campaign is to promote a better public image. Not that its helping. I was stopped for a minor road offence a couple of days ago and when he asked if I wanted to 'settle,' I showed the cop an empty wallet and he let me go without a ticket. Someone please raise their salaries!

they sticker/campaign hasn't changed anything. if anything it makes the cops sneekier than ever. the denizens of KL continue to pay and the campaign is a laughing matter. we're so used to the bribing. not that we like it but the cops really can make life difficult.

thanks grant. will write you soon.
