Happens in Egypt too! If you can't park in a spot, you just give them some money and they'll let you park and they'll also watch the car lolll

this happens all the time, nothing shocking about this video.. Heck I spent hundreds of euros in paying off cops in my Europe trip in 2010 and 2011 with my friends..
I even failed to stop for the police in eastern Europe while speeding and ran from them. they eventually caught up with other police cars, but it cost me 100 US dollars to be on my way again.

This thing perhaps a stunner for most Americans. But happens everyday in Jakarta, Indonesia, where you can pay for just about anything and everything. Driving on a what supposed to be a restricted (3 in 1 - that is 3 people ride in 1 car to reduce congestion) area during a certain time? No problem. Pay the cop whom pull you over 10 bucks will settle your issue in less than 1 minute . Need to renew your license and you need it in less than 2 hours? (normally it woud take a whole day because you have to retake some exams) No problem. 60 bucks .
Got caught red handed when delivering "a cigarette money"? No problem. Few hundred bucks will get you a get out of a jail card. Want to be a super duper rich and to secure your questionable business/businesses (but you gotta be a well to do first before playing this particular game)? No problem. Just "donate" few million bucks to some particular political parties and fork out some more millions bucks will get you a senate seat.
So you decided to open a rub-n-tug? No problem. Just give some of the shop's shares to your friendly local authority and you're all set.
Want to develop a shopping mall/a residential area/a business area/what have you and decided to break all the zonings and building codes? Again, no problem, dineros will cure your ailment stat

This is hilarious about these cops. I'm not surprised because i know this happens all over the world. Funny part is, this would not work in the city of Detroit/Comptons/LA.....
Cop waves over a car,
Car pulls over, window rolls down.....pop pop,....pop
Dead cop.............

Predominant in Philippines, too. Traffic stops increase during lunch/dinner time.

You realise they are probably only paying somewhere from 5 to 10 USD.

They are stopping them to get a payout.

This is in Baku, I've watched a similar stoppages from my hotel window a couple of times. The Azeri's are even more corrupt than the Russian police, at least when you're stopped in Russia you are usually doing something wrong, not all Russian cops are after a bribe, some actually give you a ticket without asking for a payoff, in Azerbaijan they just stop you for the cash, like what is happening in this video.

Must have only been in Eastern Europe, you would not be able to pull that in any western European country, even places like Croatia, Poland, Estonia you'd probably end up in gaol for trying to bribe a cop.
