Video of a Russian woman arguing with police went viral on social media. The foreigner who was not wearing a helmet and mask was recorded as obstructing traffic because the motorbike she was driving was crossing the middle of the road.
The incident occurred on Jalan Teuku Umar, Denpasar, Bali, on Friday (19/2) at around 16:00. “She is a Russian citizen. Yes, yesterday our members were carrying out the arrangements, at the red light some foreigners did not wear helmets, did not wear masks,” explained Denpasar Police Traffic Center, Kompol Taufan Rizaldi on Saturday (20/2).
The rider was stopped for examination and action. Instead, she argued with the police.
When the woman was arguing, her motorcycle was standing across the road. Even though the green light was already on, the drivers were blocked by the vehicle.
The drivers kept honking until the foreigner finally decided to pull over.
“We took her to the post and explained the violation. She must wear a helmet when driving, obey health protocols, PPKM, and wear a mask. Finally, we gave her a ticket,” said Taufan.
