Bribed to prevent from Paying fine.

Reported on September 4, 2010 from Mumbai , Maharashtra  ι Report #32689

The traffic havaldar at Kanjurmarg (E) grabs anybody who jumps a signal. I saw it going amber and thought would pass and got caught. The constable asked for 100 rupees saying I was driving rashly and jumped a signal. I said, I only jumped signal and admit that but rash driving is something he is wrong about. He said, pay me 100 and leave. I said I want receipt and if he puts rash driving there, he could and I will fight him in court. He gave me a chalan and I had to collect my license next day from Ghatkopar. However, he tried to still prevent me from paying the fine saying it is very far and it would be convenient to pay him then and there. I insisted on going the legal way and he was disappointed but did give me the ticket.
