Something not right?

Description

Police checked our papers and tried to get us to buy the 'Orden de Circulacion' - 50 bol- which it seems others have been told they need to buy around Santa Cruz - we just 'no entiendo' and showed our TIP covered in 3 months worth of Police stamps and he gave up.

Corrupt police stop. We managed to be slow and annoying enough about retrieving documents that they lost interest in us fairly quickly.

Police man ask me to come, watched my documents. As I told him that the previous has already check everything (he asked me if they checked) it was quick. Then he askes me a contribution, I told that I do not collaborate and he told me to go. Just say no and he will let you go.

Wanted to fine is for carrying diesel in the jerrycan. Rule 39 disallows this for Collectivos carrying passengers. Whilst we are a VW Camper van we are not a collectivo and we have no passengers. A 10 minute delay to argue the point and we were let go! Stand your ground. Do not pay it’s not required.

drove past and smiled since the rope was down it was dusk so maybe our foreign plate was less visible.

Another corrupt police stop.
DO NOT PAY ANYTHING! YOU DONT NEED A CIRCULATION OR OTHER CRAP THEY COME UP WITH!
He wanted to charge us for the full jerrycan (bidon). We asked to see the law, and this is the first stop that actually had a law book at hand :).
The law clearly states, that the jerrycans are forbidden for "collectivos" and "transportes". You can easily show them on your TIP that you are neither of the two. We were free to leave.

Please do yourself and everybody else a favor and dont pay any bribes. There is really nothing they can do, if you have your stuff together...

Hello
For our family and our motorhome it was without problems.
They ask just internationale driving licence and the truck document.
May the force be with you...

Unfriendly officer wanted 10Bs for a "sodita" after seeing our sleeping baby on the rear seat. Checked first aid kit and said Bromo (Brome?) is missing. IIRC Brome is used in nuclar plants and has nothing to do in a first aid kit, but I am no chemist nor medic so I didn't discuss. Got fscked in Angostura and here, hope it was the last corrupted police we find. Santa Cruz zone is horrible.

Once again, like the police checkpoint in Angostura, they seem to be changing tactic and wanted to see our receipts for gasolina. I showed him one from Argentina which stumped him for a moment but then he tried telling me that driving with extra gasoline is illegal. Playing dumb, 'no entiendo', telling him the Aduana said it was ok, and showing the TIP with previous checkpoint stamps helped.. they eventually gave in, stamped us and let us through.. unfortunately this checkpoint doesn't seem avoidable
