I was just given a fine at century city on a private road whilst parked in a parking bay by a traffic officer a Mr Verster. He started shouting at me that I'm obstructing the traffic and that I am f...ing stupid. I politely asked him how do I obstruct the traffic if I'm parked in a parking bay.
He replied that I must not think I am f...ing clever- I was standing in the road!. I explained to him that my indicator was on and I was allowing the car in front of me to leave the parking. He replied that I am trying to be clever with him and that he will really f... me up big time!
He asked for my drivers licence, which I handed over to him. He then walked around my vehicle constantly swearing at me and saying that he will find something to pull my disk.
He got very upset when he could find nothing and started on his little machine printing a fine.
I took out my cellphone to capture the incident and he threatened to assault me. I challenged him to it and switched my phone on- He didn't say a word further, I asked him why they don't do anything to the Taxi's and he replied that he will decide who to fine - and not the public and that we can afford the fines but the taxi's can't and that they render a service! He gave me a R 1000 fine for obstruction and threatened me that he will hunt me down.
Every time he sees me, he will make up a story- It's my word against his! Is this what Cape Town came to?
On the video it's clear that I was parked in a parking bay, while he was obstructing the traffic!! This is the guy!!
