Cop collateral damage in traffic law overhaul

The new Traffic Law had some unintended and dangerous consequences on Sunday in Kampong Cham, where a traffic officer was run over while trying to enforce it.

Police said the officer was working a checkpoint when two helmetless companions approached.

Realising they were in violation of the new edicts, the man riding pillion jumped off and ran, while the man at the wheel tried to gun it through the stop only to plough into the cop, causing injuries to his legs and face. He’s now behind bars and awaiting a court date.
