Minister fined

A minister was fined for using a mobile phone whilst driving. ok don't get excited, this happened in UK. Would we even see a minister in Jordan driving him/herself? And if one were caught using their mobile would the police ever dare to fine him/her??? It seems the traffic police let everyone get away with breaking the law.

I could make a fortune for the PSD (or is it the Municipality who benefits?) by just going down a couple of roads and fining everyone who was parking illegaly. Then what about those not wearing seat belts or children being put into danger by their parents by sitting them on their laps in the front seats? Or driving one handed whilst having a conversation on their phone? There is a fortune out there!!! Hit people in their pockets and they will obey the law. T

I totally agree with that. Money talks.

My sentiments exactly. Funny thing is that when El 3atal renewed our car tags, he discovered that we had a fine on it for talking on the cell phone. Not saying it didn't happen but we certainly weren't stopped when it occurred. Hmmm, but the 15JD fine really isn;t much of a deterrent... :)
