a cop out

When there's traffic, there's a traffic cop. When there's a traffic cop, there's even more traffic. The thing about them here is how they try to alleviate the traffic but ended up causing more of it. It's very common to find drivers saying, "Oh no traffic! Must be a cop at the lights!"

It's a tough life for cops. They get so much flack from us. Pity, some of them are quite cute. Oh you know, men in uniform. A stereotype but it's true.

Hi Edwin,
you have excellent eye to catch such a moment on the street.
He's very serious, isn't he?
So it's not the accident, then.

The police here don't really direct traffic here anymore, unless they have to, such as after an accident. I wonder what that woman behind him is looking at?

Thanks for the comments guys! ;)

Here the cops do everything and end up doing nothing. The Police department is trying to clean up their image but after years and years, it's a hard task to complete.
