I broke the law and I am very sorry

I got pulled over by a cop yesterday for speeding. I did not realize I was going 166 km/hr on the highway, it was empty but still no excuse for speeding. The policeman revoked my licence and fined me 50 k.d, I drove home shameless with just a yellow slip.

I feel terrible for my recklessnes but I'm very happy that the law is finally being enforced.


Let's hope the law's enforced with "tejar al iqamat" as well.

i seriously dont know how tejjar el eqamat get away with it! i mean we went through hell to finish the paper work for our two sales persons ! we almost canceled the bookstore project all together because of how hard it was to get everything overwith! even if u get wasta for one thing there is always a next office u have to go to!( although personally i think its embarrassing to use wasta madree fee a kind of guilt that comes with it a funny feeling inside its like u dont deserve what u got although it is ur right!!!)

as for the speeding ticket.. i never got one but i bet it doesnt feel good at all! 160 km!! i havent been driving much for the past 4 years but since ive been driving again everybody is complaining that im too slow! i never reached 100 km yet lol madree the roads were not that intimidating the last time i drove!

I also hope the law's implemented with equal gusto for those who drive too slow in the fast lane. I am wondering can someone with a surname such as yours actually get pulled over for a traffic violation in Kuwait ?
