Something not right?

Description

The normal police check of papers and peaje tickets. Wanted 20bols. NEVER pay a bribe! Put on a frowning confused face no matter what they say. Stand your ground calmly and they will give up. Onward and upwards!

No issues for us at all. Got out, showed our TIP, got a stamp on it. Had our copies of ID and driver licence documents in our hand, one officer briefly glanced at them but weren't needed. At the same time there was also some local traffic there like trucks at both sides. Passed 11:30h

Graciasss a que teníamos prendida la GoPro no los pidieron coima, al frenarnos vinieron 8 militares directo a nosotros, uno quería subirse a revisar, otro pedía documentación y otro hacía preguntas. Cuando se subieron a revisar vieron que teníamos la GoPro encendida así que le hizo la señal de que estábamos filmando y nos devolvieron la documentación y nos dejaron ir
Tengan cuidado.

Thanks to the fact that we had the GoPro on, they did not ask for a bribe. When we stopped, 8 soldiers came directly to us, one wanted to get in to check, another asked for documentation and another asked questions. When they came up to check they saw that we had the GoPro on so they gave the signal that we were filming and they gave us back the documentation and let us go.
Be careful.

No problems at all. Just get out of the car and go to the police office box next to the 'rope gate' and show them the documents they need.

Safe travels! @RobJansenphotography

Report Check-In

They just waved us through (2 motorcycles). No trouble at all - however we never ever had any trouble with corrupted police.

Report Check-In

Asked to see the TIP. Not friendly but stamped our paperwork and sent us off. At the end, he said if we could give him something for a "gaseosa", we said no, and walked away. No issues. They didn't check our van.

Most easy 10 seconds passing - no questions, just the stamp.
