    Default Important info

    IMPORTANT INFO of traffic fines in Mozambique. On the front page is a toll free? Number to phone when you need assistance or want to report an incident. 800 800 900 is the number.
    The info was translated by my collage Abdala for me.
    Keep a copy in the vehicle and query any traffic fines

    PLEASE DELETE the entry

    Default Along a similar vein

    Whilst in Moz recently, another South African touring party was involved in an accident. A child was hit a glansing blow, sustaining NO injuries...As is customary, the driver stopped to render assistance. The car was soon surrounded by rather threatening locals, including the police. The local headman demanded a significant pay-off, while the police proceeded to collect all the occupants' passports, also demanding a large bribe before same were to be returned...
    The upshot: several days of delayed departure. involvement of attorneys and the South African Diplomatic services in Moz...a huge mess!
    The manager of Paindane Resort gave me the advice regarding the toll free number on the third party insurance form...If at all concerned about bad shenanigans; call the number and request assistance. take down the name, rank time and as much other detail from the official, DO NOT surrender your passport, and if things do look bleak, insist on being escorted to the closest police station. DO not pay ANY bribes to locals as third party insurance takes care of ALL expenses that might develop out of an insident such as an accident.

    Methinks that there is more potential trouble in Moz than what I take to be accepatable...I'd rather in future steer clear.....

    I used to work in Moz a few years back. If you do run over a person or have an accident. Do not stop but drive like hell for the RSA embassy.
    That is the safest and easiest.
