Cops shoot to stop reckless driving

Two police officers in Preah Sihanouk province were reprimanded on Sunday after they fired their guns into the air in an apparent attempt to stop two young men on a mirrorless motorbike who were driving without helmets. Prom Pov, the provincial Traffic Police director, said the two police officers had been sent for “re-education”, and that a report had been submitted to his superiors, adding that no decision had yet been made on whether further punishment is in order. He said four Traffic Police officers had tried and failed to stop the two young men in order to fine them. “We called them to stop, but they rejected, and they took some big rocks to throw to those police and cursed them with bad words,” he said, adding that the police had fired their guns in self-defence.
