It is probable that a poorly paid policeman could revert to taking bribes in order to feed the family, but it appears the occurrences have increased recently.

This is how a motorist who hinted he was a Singaporean is seen on a video being forced to bribe his way out of a messy situation with a traffic policer in Malaysia.

The entire act was caught on a mobile phone, apparently by a passenger.

The video starts with the driver being pulled off the traffic by an officer on a Malaysian highway, and a discussion ensued in which the policeman is heard saying I stopped you because you were driving faster than the 110 KM/H limit.

The policeman is then heard saying: “Rm100 can,” to the driver.

The video is making its rounds in Malaysia and Singapore on WhatsApp, in which there is a message attached to it where the driver warns Singaporeans not to drive into Malaysia or risk having to pay bribes to police officers.
