Celebs to pay extra for accidental fame.
The Security General Directorate is bringing to life a
rather interesting practice in traffic supervision. Police
will henceforth investigate the traffic wrongdoings caught
on camera and aired on TV gossip shows of famous singers
and actors, who are followed by millions. The violations
will be reported to the concerned unit and processed in
accordance with the Highway Traffic Law.
The TV producers will be urged to "please emphasize
this mistake on subsequent shows." The police plan to
implement the same program with newspapers, with
publishers asked to explain to readers why traffic accidents
occur, in detail. The program is not just restricted to the
famous. Normal citizens who are caught on TV cameras
making traffic violations will have their license plate
numbers relayed to the concerned police unit.
