A Facebook video was published by Clive Naidoo on Friday, 28 August 2015, of a motorist and a JMPD officer arguing over an issuing of a traffic fine for shooting a red robot.
The JMPD officer was abusive in a sarcastic tone with him over the alleged traffic violation. Read here of his experience.
On Friday 28 August 2015 approximately 08h45 at the intersection Bram Fischer Drive and Jan Smuts Ave, I was pulled over by a polite female JMPD officer who went and checked my licence disk then came to my window and greeted and I gave her my drives licence, at that stage another very abrupt and arrogant female JMPD officer barged in saying “you got 4 eyes can’t you see you shot the robot”, I replied “ sorry, I got 2 eyes and a pair of glasses and might be you got four eyes”. At that stage she grabbed my drives licence from the other officer and went to get a fine book. I realised that this was not going to look good so at that stage I started recording the conversation, watch what transpired. Take note that I was on the right lane, cars in front and taxi on left. The taxi was pulled over and was sent off, including cars in front and rear, the traffic lights were green and with many taxi’s been pulled over everyone had to drive slow to avoid bumping into another and yes I was angry as I did not drive through the red traffic lights as accused. My personal details revealed in the video, do apologise I could not block it out however I want to expose the incident. Please let me know how you feel after watching the clip and please send me email addresses of who I can raise this with. Please share.
