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.
