What a week!
Got pulled over by the police on Monday for speeding. The policemen didn't seem to know how to fill out the ticket. Apparently the the tickets changed earier this year. He gave me a ticket and off he went leaving me to go to work as normal.
I sent one of the site drivers to the police station with a copy of the ticket to see what the fine was. Well, when he came back he told me it was: 1200 Dirham fine, car impounded for 30 days and i was to be imprisoned for 2 days! oh yes, imprisoned for 2 days.
We employ a Emerate to do translations & help to deal with the the local government & the munisipalities. He thought something was wrong. He went to the police station to sort it all out. The long and the short of it was I ended up with a 400 dirham fine and that's it. The policeman had filled out the form wrong.
This took all week to get to this sorted out and my arse has been like a clowns pocket for most of that time.
Normal George is to resume now
