A video of a female expat confronting a police officer after violating multiple rules has gone viral on social media. The Russian national was noticed by traffic police as she was riding her motorbike without a helmet or facemask on public roads.
After being asked to pull over, the expat (initials VC) blocked the road on her Yamaha N-Max to confront an officer at the intersection of Jalan Teuku Umar and Jalan Imam Bonjol, in Denpasar on Friday (19/2).
The Head of Denpasar Traffic Officer, Kompol Taufan Rizaldi confirmed the incident.
As seen in the video, VC decided to confront the officer rather than comply with his instructions to follow him to the side of the road after she violated both traffic rules and prevention protocols at once.
“Our officer pulled her over because she wasn’t wearing a safety helmet or face mask while riding a motorbike on the public road,” Rizaldi said on Friday evening (19/2).
The woman began to argue and blocked the traffic with her motorbike. However, she soon complied with the officer.
“She finally admitted that she was wrong and the officer gave her a ticket as a consequence,” Rizaldi concluded.
He explained that police officers will enforce the rules to both locals and expats and will penalize them in accordance with the Indonesian constitution.
