never underestimate the stupidity and greed of corrupt politicians. These "violations" are what happens when you allow the corrupt elected official to play king. A rule is not a law.
Bad news. "Covid" is a mild flu and yes it kills the elderly just like the flu does every year. Thousands die EVERY year but nobody cares.

The covid and a mask are much more fun. Denying citizens their rights gets the pols re-elected. Right, portugal?

Police have more important things to do.
To handle real criminals.
Not normal persons driving in a car, not doing anything harmful.

But it is easy to stop normal cars on the road.
Than catching criminals.

Please stop this stupidity
And concentrated police forces on important things.
And concentrate Corona regulations to things that makes a difference.

I did not expect this of Portugal

Don’t pay these fines!

Refuse! The lockdown is criminally illegal, and the pandemic is a hoax!

Fight back against the political communist liars!

Open your eyes!
