When I was stopped by the traffic police about three years ago for violating a traffic light and was asked to pay 10,000 riels, I did. I did not understand that I had just “bribed” the police officer. Today I know that under the traffic law I am required to pay only 5,000 riels for such an offense and that what I handed to the police officer was a bribe.
If this happened today, I would do things differently. I would make sure that I pay the right amount and ask for a receipt. That way I know that the money I pay goes to fill the State’s coffers rather than the police officers’ pockets.
