Police bribe

Three of us were traveling from Johannesburg to Krugerpark and by Polokwani were stopped by police . The one policeman told us we had been speeding, could be right and said that we had to pay him 1500 rand otherwise he would send the driver to jail. I have lived in South Africa so know my way a bit. After 5 minutes we paid 500 rand and could drive on.The driver was a  young lady from the Netherlands and was her second day in South Africa for the first time, so very frightened . The policeman had a very distinct gold front tooth.It is bad for tourism when such stories get out and South Africa is one of the most beautiful countries in the world and it's people.
