Fines that shocked me

I stand before you ashamed. Embarrassed. Its a miracle I'm even standing before you at all after Muscati saw my traffic fines.

Mystique said...

lol . i was shocked to see a 10 rial fine on mine..but after seeing urs i feel so much better lol.. all in wadi kabir.. going and coming back from work i guess... blame it one being a new mother we are always in a hurry to get home !

Kay said...

wow 280 in just 3 months!

anonymous said...

oh lord have mercy and that is not even a years worth of fines. it would be cheaper to get u a driver hahahahaha

nzm said...

Wow, OD, you're going to have a lot of making up to do with Muscati!

It's pretty funny though, when it's all grouped together like that - at least you can see that you're punctual!

OceanDream said...

The thing is, I don't even speed! When Mux is in the car with me, he is always telling me off cause the people behind me are always flashing their headlights at me so I can move out of their way.

Im always telling HIM to be careful because I think he is always going too fast, but when we checked his offences online, it said "no offences registered." Naturally he had something else to hold against me.

ANYHOW, Mux found out which radar was the culprit and told me to be careful. Naturally I decided to be careful by taking a much longer way home to avoid that particular road.

How am I supposed to know that the speed limit there is 80 not 100. I'm coming down a slope, how can I go less than 80??? I blame it on gravity.

I'm guessing we won't be going away this summer :)

A. Woman in black said...

Yowzaaaa !!!

That really sucks...

If its any consolation, you're not alone...the same thing happened to me ( only not to this extent :-P )
I am always screaming at my husband in the car because he speeds. I am like " I hope you get every radar from here to Muscat" !

Turns out I had more fines than him :-(

Now I hear about it all the time...

PizzaQueen said...

Ya salaaaaaam bella
with 280 i go almost two months with taxi

OceanDream said...

Ok I know its not nice to think this way, but my brother was over at whatever that palce is where you pay your fines and called me up to tell me that there was a guy there whose fines amount to RO 2000.

I'm not the worst of the lot :)

illogicist said...

"How am I supposed to know that the speed limit there is 80 not 100."

LOL! I get that sometimes. As far as I know, I havent been fined...maybe I have, but Im out of the country. Let my parents deal with it!

2000 rials? Thats someone who just doesnt care about speedlimits. Thats an accident waiting to happen.

Sowhat said...

wow thats alot !! i always drive with the speed liit but i do agree with you some stree you dont know what is the speed limit on it and there is not signs .. any how my car has kuwaiti plates and fines never made it to kuwait .. do you want my plates :P

Lym said...

Hahahaha. Sorry this is funny!

Okay, I know which road you are talking about and I learnt that is 80, not 100, when my sister was caught on that road with the radar. I learnt from her mistake.

Didn't you see the radar light in any of those cases?

OceanDream said...

Nopes, its in the afternoon and I didn't see any of the TWENTYEIGHT flashes.

Maybe I was just driving too fast to see them, hehe.

muscati said...

I'm especially proud of the week of April 15th where she was caught every single work day, including twice on Sunday!

NiGhTFaCe said...

I assume its one radar & it seems so. That is too much!

Shil said...

Whoa, but OD you are quite punctual. What was muscati's first reaction? Would have loved to see the expression on his face!

Mystique said...

lol at muscati's comment hahah

OceanDream said...

Mux thought I was joking. That there was no way on earth my fines would be that, umm,expensive. After that he was speechless for a bit.

Now all he does is make fun of me.

PembaLicious said...

No variety! A friend of mine got slapped with these...

"Overtaking on the pavement" (R.O. 75) and "Illegal modifications to Cargo Box" (Whatever that means, R.O. 50)

Anyway, I have heard some people from PDO are creating a list of GPS locations of all the stationary radars with their orientation and trigger speed.

OceanDream said...

Your friend's fines make mine look dead boring! You are so right.

Well, I hope next year I'm even more boring and have a clean sheet!

Qatar Cat said...

Wow! I am impressed!

And not the least by the first comment for the post. Well done, Jassim. Very classy.

It's obviously mostly Arab women who speed.

LOL

Hi,

you might want to think of something like this - though having quit your job it may not be relevant any more
