category relating to Gauteng
Question value: R 150.00
Yesterday I was driving and turning onto an offramp over a yellow line.
There was Metro cops. It looked like they pulled me over, so I put on my hazards and pulled over to the side.
When I checked my rearview mirror, the metro cop was not moving to my vehicle but pulled the vehicle off beheind me.
Then I started moving forward to take the offramp.
After I took the offramp I checked in my rearview mirror again, and it looked like another vehicle was flashing his brights at me.
I don't want to get into trouble. What must I do?
I read last night that it is a criminal offence if you chase away from the Metro Cops, but I thought they didn't pull me over and I didn't speed of or try to avoid them?
Please advise what would be the best process forme to follow.
