Traffic offenses are a common occurrence in Mzansi and motorist often disregard the laws of the road when they are in a hurry.
However, one man decided to run a red light after seeing a traffic officer doing the same. He got pulled over regardless and ended up arguing with the cop.
The guy fought back saying that he ran the red light cause he saw that the traffic officer did the same.
He then refused to step out the vehicle or hand over his license and said it’s not fair that the cop can run a red light but he can’t.
At one point, the upset motorist tells the cop to “just kill me then cause I’m not leaving this car." A video of the incident was shared on Twitter by social media user @KeletsoMs, who captioned it:
"South Africa at it again... This video is so hilarious."

Twitter user, @RealDMK_SA, commented:
"At first I thought it was acted, you know two friends messing around but I realised noh maan the acting was just too great, could only mean that it's real. Yes hold them accountable Chief, write him a ticket too."
