Know The Rules Otherwise Traffic Police Will Fool You

Today morning I and my friends were going somewhere "Triple Seat", breaking the Traffic Rule.

Unfortunately, a policeman caught us. And you know how police behave; he asked as to pay Rs. 600/- as fine. Then he took the license with him and without giving any memo, he went away saying "Come to Chaturshungi Police Station".

After a horrible harassment of two hours at police station, and threatening of various acts and rules (he also tried to impose criminal activity).

What we did was just helping a friend to reach hospital, due to sickness he could have fall down and that's why we were in "Triple Seat".

Finally he took Rs. 300/- as bribe and told like he was showing mercy by not charging Rs. 600/- official fine.

Later on we searched rules on internet, and got to know that we had been fool.

The actual fine was Rs. 100/- only, and we gave Rs. 300/- as bribe.

So lets us be aware of rules, so we don't need beware of anyone.
