The staff checking your windshield (if you’ve paid or not) is very efficient, and in fact quite many at work on a daily basis. Don’t underestimate them. We’ve all done so in the past, and it is bad karma. Don’t take your chances, honestly. The fine is from 5000 and up. Did you get a ticket? they are easy to pay and you get a discount if you manage to get it done within 3 days.
