Fate of not paying a bribe

Reported on October 11, 2010 from Chennai , Tamil Nadu  ι Report #32658

This incident happened near Hotel Trident signal on the GST road. It's my mistake of crossing the signal before the Red signal. Although, I stopped my car and due to the last few seconds hesitation I tried to cross the signal. Caught by a cop there and ended up paying around Rs.1050 with receipt.
Actual penalty for the traffic signal violation is Rs.50/-. The police demands somewhere around Rs.200-300 for signal violation. As I voluntarily accepted to pay, I paid the highest signal violation of rash driving. I know whether I drove in a rash manner and even the police should have known about it. Probably, I assume this highest penalty is kept for those who voluntarily pays the penalty with receipt.
