Motorcycle Traffic Fine

I have been riding different motorcycles since 2001 and this is the second time I got a ticket. The first time was a few years back when I had a rider behind me without wearing a helmet which was fair enough but today's fine didn't make any sense to me.

I have been parking my bike in the same place on top of the foot path in embarkiya for the past 7 years and I never got a fine. But today at 11pm I just went to pick up something from my shop and when I came back I saw a ticket on the seat saying 'No Parking - Parked on the foot path'.

Its really weird because there are no proper places for bikers to park their motorcycles and the paid parking's in Kuwait City don't allow motorcycles to enter in. So where shall we park then?

Anyways I didn't bother to go and argue with the police there so he can have a big head and just left. I sometimes feel they get some reward for filling up their fine books or some bonus.

Dandoon: Whatever it is it just doesn't makes sense to me!

You ride?! nice. My university has a motorcycle class where you ride and then get licensed. I was registered until my mother found out and that was the end of that lol. Not like I would ever buy a bike but I just like to experience.

Cant you go to court and ask them to drop your ticket by proving it?

kella met2a5er said...

And yes, they get like 30KD reward everytime they finish a book..

Hellraiser said...

Hillarious, been riding for 30+ years now, never heard of a parking ticket for Motorcycles, even in europe you can get away parking the bike in odd places. I love this place cops make up their own rules as they go.

there should be proper places for bikers to park..

:::ShoSho::: said...

it's amazing how motorcycle / bicycle riders here in swiss are given same rights as car drivers walla..

..::Amu::.. said...

Aurous: I seriously think they never have anything better to do!

kella met2a5er: LOL how can i park it on the road..there was soo much Za7ma someone would have knocked it down!

Batoula: here the process is too long and its not worth it. The ticket is maybe for KD15 which is better to be paid! So you still thinking to take the lessons?

kella met2a5er:WTF thats too much to get paid for a book :D

Anonymous: it is ;/

Hellraiser: Oh yeah big time they have their own rules every where!

3anooda: that is really sad...

Big Pearls: I would say yes we bikers need a proper parking..

:::ShoSho::: Well they are given alot of respect too unlike Kuwait.. where bikers get no respect!

The only time i have ever been fined in q8 was in mubarakia :(

Ms Loala said...

The police here are so random beyond reason and logic!
But what can you say! When you remember that we are in Q8 then everything suddenly gets justified.

mo3ath said...

لووووول اي عادي عادي

اوضحلك معلومه ، إذا ماخلص دفتر المخالفات راح يتحاسب

احنا فاهمين السالفه بالعكس انهم يتكافؤون إذا خلصوا دفتر ولا اثنين علينا بس العكس اهو الصح :)

كلام ملازم اول خالفني قبل فتره لوووول

His Sweetheart said...

They do get a promotion because of it I heard!!


Otherwise, how do you justify such unfair fines?!!
