Experience Malawi

Road Police in Malawi

Police in Malawi are generally courteous and helpful.

Traffic police in Malawi are a slightly different ball game. Depending
on the time of year (eg Xmas) they can look for the smallest problem with your car or attitude and fine you for anything that might be out of place!

Fines range from a few dollars/pounds to a much larger sum that needs to be paid at the police station. Fines CAN be negotiable, however don't expect an official receipt as these will go straight into your officer's pocket!
