After making numerous traffic violations, a Muslim woman was pulled over by police. Officer Vermeulen approached the woman’s car, and began the typical traffic stop procedures. That’s when things took a strange turn. The flustered woman attempted to use excuse after excuse to dodge the hefty traffic tickets that she was inevitably about to receive. First citing religious reasons, she said that she refused to shake the officer’s hand because men and women are not allowed to touch each other. The officer brushsed it off and informed her that she was being pulled over because she was not wearing a seatbelt and that she was illegally using a phone without a hands-free device.
Again attempting to weasel her way out of the traffic ticket, she said that a doctor had given her a medical excuse to not wear a seat belt. When asked to show the written doctor’s excuse, the woman was cornered and admitted that she didn’t have one. Here’s where the story takes an absurd turn: When the officer informed her that it was illegal to use a phone while driving the Muslim woman said that she was listening to the Quran in an attempt to cure her toothache.
Officer Vermeulen had the perfect response for the rude woman, without missing a beat, he responded “an aspirin will probably work better against the pain than the Quran.” He then proceeded to hand the woman a $245 ticket. The entire interaction was caught on camera, as a camera crew was filming for a Norwegian police documentary called “Wegmisbruikers,” which translates to “Road Offenders.” You can watch the entire clip below.
