So driving slowly is prohibited now? That is what happend to Jasmine of Damascus who got 50 JD ticket fine for driving below speed limit on her way back home from Marka to Amman. She had a problem in her tire, and was driving slowly for her safety as time was approaching night and she feared getting into trouble searching for anyone to fix her tire. A policeman stopped her, she explained to him her problem. Instead of helping her, he didn’t even dare to give her a ticket at hand, she got it the next day as a message on her cell phone!
ISN’T THERE ANY WAY TO FILE A COMPLAINT AGAINST POLICEMEN?
Since when do we have to watch our speed lower limit. Is this part of the new traffic law that was rejected by the parliament? or is it part of a traffic law that got approved without being publicied? and if there is such a law, then why don’t they first add signs to the roads stating the lower limit of speed. I mean, there should be a range for speed, no? just one fixed speed that we all have to abide with? That is insane!
It is weird what happens to Jasmine, in another event, when she tried to argue a policeman on a ticket he was about to issue for her. He said to her bluntly: SHUT UP or I will give you another ticket!
What an OUTRAGEOUS behaviour from a man that is paid to regulate our traffic, not to bully people in order to collect money for his salary! I am asking the government to force every single policeman to have a badge with his name on it near his chest along with a hot line number for citizens who would like to complain. At the back of policemen, there should be a big sign with the number and a text saying ‘How do you assess my service?’ aka the companies with driving cars that have signs saying ‘How is my driving’.
Another story Jasmine told me about her brother. Apparantly the rumor about the law against long and spiky hair has some ground. Some policemen caught her brother and forced him to go cut his hair! They threatened him to put him in jail if they saw him having the same long hair again!
How does that go with the denying of government of the existance of such law?! And how dare such policemen act in a way that defies the law?
Whom are we to complaint to for such violations of laws?
