In Brief: Drivers say police on extortion spree

Two days after police began enforcing the series of traffic regulations outlined in the Land Traffic Law, taxi drivers travelling on National Road 2 have complained that authorities were using the new regulations as an excuse to extort money from motorists. On Saturday, police throughout the country began assessing fines and in some cases confiscating the vehicles of drivers who lacked licence plates or who were driving motorbikes without mirrors or helmets. On Monday, however, taxi driver Seng Kimsan said that though his car was in perfect order, police stopped him numerous times in Kandal province. "My car has a licence plate, I have a driver's licence, but still I had to pay," he said.
