cracked windscreen.

Am writing this inside a police cell in Matunda I was arrested in 4:30 this morning because of a cracked windscreen and refused to pat with a thousand Bob.
Is this legal talkers?. am on my way to court now.

As per traffic laws it’s illegal to drive with a cracked windscreen.

Police are law enforcers and being ignorant of law is your personal challenge. Just Google about traffic laws and educate yourself since you sound like the cop is punishing you wrongly for not parting with a bribe.

Hio lazima ungojee 24 hours kama missing person.

The abstract indicates that the windscreen is cracked and more importantly it gives you peace of mind with those traffic fellows.

Nowadays no traffic offence is minor… Minor offenses were left for drunkards and disorderly :D:D:D

It has expiry period.

Mine is currently cracked. I have an abstract and insurance is going to pay for it.

This is a very minor offence. How you ended up in cell is a mystery. When you’re out, go see the DTO and make a complaint.

I did that once for a very minor offence. I ended up making a friend.

That doesn’t give us the reason he was locked up.

Having an abstract doesn’t get you of the hook

Even assuming that is the case here, the offense is bailable.

Huyu labda ako jela saa hii

The cops are back on the roads with a vengeance. Just seen a fella flagged down na akaitishwa license for driving a Voxy with 2 mattresses tied on top.Huyo kitambo afike kwenye anaenda ataona siku mrefu.
