Stopped by the police in Czech Republic

Jump to last reply

On my recent trip through the Czech Republic, I was driving my rental car from Cesky Krumlov to Kutna Hora, through some small town on a Saturday morning. I had just exited a town, driving up a hill, when saw two policeman on the side of the road standing next to their car. One of them held up a little paddle with a "stop" symbol on it. So I stopped.

I said I was an American. The lead policeman simply asked (in English) for my driving permit and passport. I handed him my International Driving Permit that was in the glove compartment. I had to get out and get my passport out of my luggage in the trunk. Both of them looked briefly at the pictures in each, looked at me, leafed through my passport...handed them back, said thank you, and I was on my way in less than a minute.

So were they just doing random inspections? They weren't stopping every car. Just curious. Ever had an experience like this?
