We were traveling to Hurgada (Red Sea) from Cairo. Suddenly the police stopped us, in the middle of nowhere. We got caught on a speed camera! Hard to believe but true. Apparently the speed limit was 120 km/h, but we were traveling at 180 km/h. Fair enough… but does it make sense? Cairo’s traffic is crazy and no one cares.
We have been fined – but no, we didn’t pay. One of my friends called an officer he knows… and magically the fine was gone. Ah, Egypt!
I took the opportunity to take some pictures. I had to take the first one secretly. The second one shows the location.
