If lost, or in doubt about the safety of an area, phone a police station for advise.
If you are stopped by a policeman or traffic officer, request to see their identification cards and record names and number.
You will never be required to pay cash to a traffic or police officer for traffic violations or other citations. Fines are only ever paid at Magistrate Courts, the Traffic Department or municipal offices. You will always be issued a formal printed receipt. If you are denied these rights, report the matter immediately to the nearest Police Station.
