Police Welfare Contribution - THe Growler
To follow Ian's tale, I have today been issued the first of my Christmas tickets in Manila. The offence was "swerved suddenly to avoid another vehicle". Said vehicle being a large bus, and me on a motorbike. The offence indicated on the ticket is "Reckless Imprudence" (500 pesos), and I was fined another 50 pesos for "Arogance" (spelt thus), because I stupidly said that if I hadn't swerved I would have been a traffic accident. Total cost about 8 quid and, sigh of relief, I kept my license, after bunging an extra hundred each to Officers Smith and Wesson respectively.

Well, makes a change from faceless letters coming through the mail and points on the license.....

Yes, it's the points on the licence that's criminal.

Amen! Without points speeding fines would be ok!

It's the ban that puts poeple out of work!

Dear Growler,

If you are honestly riding a motorcycle through Manila traffic (I take it you mean Manila in the Philipines) then I salute your courage (or insanity).

Regards,

Stuart.
Re: Police Welfare Contribution - THe Growler
Yes Stuart I do mean Manila in the Philippines. I also belong to the Freedom Riders Association of the Phils and the Manila Mad Dogs M/C Club (perhaps the last answers your question).

I take it the midday sun is no problem for you, then.
And are lunchtime club rides mandatory?
