maybe there is no other place in this world that we need to pay the toll twice for one way road: at the entry and also at the sortie. recently we need to pay 3 times for one way to Kompongsom: entry, in the middle and sortie.
now along the national road no. 4 from Phnom Penh to Kampongsom, we have the third booth in the middle and the cashier did play a joke on us.
we bought the normal ticket which is cost 2800 Riels, and when we arrive at the middle booth, they ask us to buy another ticket. we show them the ticket we bought, because there’s no reason why we need to pay in the middle of the road. the cashier said we need to pay. it was a very hard time for us to imagine and understand how this thing could possibly happen ? we bought the 2nd ticket that cost 2800 Riels again and at the sortie near Kampongsom we need to buy another one that cost the same 2800 Riels.
in total we paied 8400 Riels, incredible !
and the story is at the first booth, if you go to Kampongsom, or come back to Phnom Penh, ask for special ticket, i didn’t understand what is special ticket, they didn’t mention a goddam thing. and why just go direct to Kampongsom or Phnom Penh should be considered so Special? in fact they got a one way ticket direct to Kampongsom or Phnom Penh that cost if i remember 5200 Riels. they didn’t put the proper sign board and if we don’t ask they will give you the normal ticket, and i don’t see the reason why we need to buy another ticket at the middle booth if we mistaken bought a wrong ticket, because we need to pay another 2800 Riels at the end anyway (that it is already insane).
it’s insane and i will do anything to find the way to give this link to AZ company. it’s too easy man to come and put the booth ask for money. i would build the 4th one soon somewhere along the road … me too i also need that easy cash.
i understand the purpose of middle booth is to catch the automobile from Koh Kong and somewhere in the middle, but if someone buy a ticket already, they absolutely no need to buy another one at the middle booth.
or otherwise i will build another booth too
