When I last visited Morocco in 2013 I remember being stopped by the police three times for going 10 km/h too fast (something we call Spielraum in Germany) and when they showed me the nice handwritten receipt I was like: right on! at least they are getting people to slow down and paid my 35 Euros. I was already wondering how locals would pay these outrageous prices but did not dare to "tip" the policeman. This holiday I had a conversation with my friend Lando about the topic and he told me that no one pays for their ticket...well someone should have told me earlier. Anyways, when stopped again I managed to pay 10 instead of the 35 Euros. The second time I made a bit more of an effort, I stepped out the car did a bit of shit chat asked about the family and made a new friend and most importantly I did not have to pay my ticket. I recommend to make some friends in Morocco, it always pays off :) Shokran!
