Racist traffic cops


Rocket-Boy

Recommended Posts

I have been working throughout the silly season and on my way to work each morning I always see cyclists on the road.

Now on the last 3 times that I have come to work I have seen a cyclist (white) being pulled over by a traffic cop for riding on a national road.

 

Thats not the problem, the problem is that there are a number of other people mainly from the locations cycling to work who I have seen RIDING PAST THE OFFICER WRITING OUT THE TICKET!!!!!!

I mean come on seriously. I saw it again this morning when the traffic officer driving in front of me ignored two black guys on their bikes and another 10 odd walking on the highway. So please someone explain to me how this is not racist?

I know its alot easier to take the white guy in all his cycling kit and fine him because he is most likely going to pay it vs taking the black guy on his bike who will lie about his address and all of his other details and you will never get a cent out of him.

 

 

I really really hate double standards.Angry

It has almost nothing to do with race and everything to do with this. Same reason the Metros will spend all day hiding in a bush to fine speeding motorists with fixed income and fixed address vs. looking for moving violations, unroadworthy vehicles etc.

The entire exercise is a money-making scam.

If it was the same cyclist on each occasion he must be really stupid.

 

As others have said its better to look at the economics first, rather than race.

 

It is astonishing that masses of folk walk up the N3 offramp onto the highway in Bedfordview every day. It must be happening in numerous other places and isnt seen as a big problem despite the high no. of pedestrian road deaths.

Thats the whole problem in this country though. lets assume that its not racist and the black speed cops I have seen pulling over the white cyclists while leaving the black ones to ride right past is a non issue.

 

The real issue comes in then with law enforcement being entirely selective. If you get a fine for something im fairly sure you will be a bit pissed off when you see someone else doing the same thing and there being no consequence at all.

 

What annoys me just as much as that is that people just accept it as being normal.

as of monday, 295 of the 840 deaths on the road were pedestrians. i am surprised there aren't more. one place that is lucky not to see problems in the smal street mall zebra crossings. the people don't give a hoot and cross when they want!

What is even worse is the millions of ZAR being wasted in building pedestrian bridges over freeways. They also spend thousands in building walls. The poeples then just bash a hole through the wall ten metres from the newly constucted bridge and cross the freeway on foot. The new bridges on the N3 to Durban outside Alberton is a good example. If they get run over it is their own problem and it should be viewed with no pity as they were as stoopit as the ienglieshmen executed in Chaaina after caught peddling with drugs....... they deserve it!!!!!!!

Big h, what about the trauma caused to the person that hits the "people that deserve it"? do they deserve it aswell?

 

if you cycle on a national road you should get fined regardless.
