Actually, there are some convertible police cars in Bulgaria:











Rumours say these are confiscated from criminals

Look at the last picture, the policeman is just going to take off the police lights from and to hide them in his pocket

In fact they seem to take off the lights and maybe to convert the cars in some occasions. The car in the third and the last picture is the same, but the lights on the roof are different (look at the metal part that holds them and also the shape of the blue parts)...

I heard that Bulgarian policeman have large pockets

When I traveled by bus through Bulgaria I remember that a policeman stopped us and told the driver to fill up his pockets... if you know what I mean

Actually, the exact password is "Ами сега какво ще правим?" translated like "What shall we do now?". After hearing this sentence you are supposed to offer the bribe, with the password-answer "Не може ли да измислим нещо?" which should be something like "can't we find another solution?" ...
Usually the corrupted policeman's question is following some "good cop - bad cop" theater. The bad cop tells you how wrong things you have done and what shall this cost you if they fine you, how bad will be the consequences, take your driving licence etc. The good cop tells you "you look like a good guy, why shall we cause you such trouble, you probably did it quite unwillingly, we should do a compromise..."
But it's good thing these cases are quite fewer and fewer, some cops got fired from the police when they were caught in set-ups etc. There are special phone lines for signals for corrupted police officers, recently they announced all police cars will be equipped with supervision cameras etc.

Yesterday police officers stopped the car, driven by main head of Slovenian police. The company (of the police) car had no valid permission because it passed some days ago.

He got a warning not to do that again.

A couple of days ago I was on the bus, on my way downtown Brescia, and I casually read the "Terms of service" in a panel on the wall. An odd article caught my attention.:

Quote:
Trasporto di cose
Il passeggero può trasportare gratuitamente una sola valigia, pacco o collo a mano, purché di dimensioni non superiori, anche in un solo lato ai 50 cm. E’ consentito il trasporto al massimo di due colli a mano per passeggero.
Non sono, in ogni caso, ammessi al trasporto gli oggetti ingombranti, sudici, o pericolosi.
Eccezioni:
- passeggini per bambini: sono ammessi in vettura e trasportati gratuitamente purché vengano piegati in modo da ridurre al massimo l’ingombro;
- strumenti musicali: è concesso il trasporto gratuito di un solo strumento musicale portatile, anche se in un lato supera i 50 cm;
- sci: è concesso il trasporto di un solo paio di sci per passeggero, previo pagamento del biglietto;
- fucili da caccia: è concesso il trasporto di un fucile da caccia, purché scarico e contenuto nell’apposito fodero.

Quote:
Carrying things
The passenger can carry only one bag, parcel or package for free by hand, provided that it is no larger than 50 cm. It is possible to transport up to two hand luggage per passenger.
They are not, however, allowed to transport bulky, dirty, or dangerous items.
Exceptions:
- Strollers for children are allowed in the car and transported free of charge provided they are folded so as to minimize the footprint;
- Musical instruments: it is granted free transport for one portable musical instrument, even if one side exceeding 50 cm;
- skis: it is granted the transport of a single pair of skis per passenger, upon payment of the ticket;

Many if not all public transit companies have such weird regulations but they never enforce it. They only check if you have bought the ticket.

In real life, electronic toll collection was first introduced in Bergen, Norway in 1986, and well into the 21th century many countries still struggle to implement it.
