    That is a shame.

    The Tigers need these corrupt policemen at city checkpoints.

    Never mind. The Tigers will find other ways of bypassing these checkpoints.

    When driver leaves from Kilinochi to colombo he always need to have 15 of Rs 50 notes.

    he need to put one on each begging bowl ( Police man hat) to get colombo without harrasments.

    it was not bad before mahinda came. since mahinda came they stop you at every hundred meters for Rs 50.

    I think this is a common phenomenon in a lot of asian countries. you get stopped you put a few RS into your Driving Licence and OFF you go. the cops also know. they ahve different rates for different folks. (if youre not a local coming back to visit) then you pay a bit more!

    if you get caught speeding by TE police DO not attempt to bribe them . The repercussions are higher than the speeding ticket!!

    Actually about 2 weeks ago Suresh, proposed to use his Pen which has a micro camera embedded to it and offer bribes at checkpoints and send the evidence to Uncle Shantha (Kottegoda).

    But I yelled at him and advised not get involved with these things directly.

    [ if you get caught speeding by TE police DO not attempt to bribe them . ]

    TE police can not do that, because the punishment is death.

    GOSL should implment a severe punishment just by letting these people go.
