Sh*t I got fined

The traffic department of the ministry of interior has an internet portal which lets you chek if you have any pending traffic fines (so far only available in Arabic). I was checking it a bit ago to reassure myself that I've been good on the road, but unfortunately:

I can think of many better ways to spend 50kd.

but hey that's how it's the second ministry when it comes to its income after oil =} how do you think they got there ;)

hehe damn! the problem is you won't know about all these fines unless you check or need to renew some paperwork, and by then they can really add up...

that's what you get for driving 40km/h over the speed limit... actually, that's what you get for not seeing the cam on the road

That's bad.

Been driving for 5 years and haven't exceeded 50KD of fines. *knocks on wood*

Yazeed said...

yep, all clear heheheh, i know i got flashed over 7 times this year...but woohoooo i'm all clear.. someone told me its cause they never change the film in the cams

EniGma said...

Yupp, nice and blank :) for now.. yazeed sometimes they can't determine which car is speeding, and some of them take up to 2 months to be enter the system

EniGma said...

*to enter*

I just remembered one wasn't mine, my bro in law parked in a non-parking zone and the other one was me crossing a red light!!

I got flashed the other day speeding in my friends car, does that count? :)

Joud said...

criticizer: u just jinxed yourself ;)

yazeed: maybe it's taking them a while to gather all your fines :P

Enigma: good for u, and u're right they do take a while to show up

elijah: no it doesn't count; not to you anyway ;)
