Police Force Field

Ever notice that when a police car comes into view, the cars around the police car suddenly all slow down into a below-the-speed-limit trot? And everyone obeys any and all traffic signs? This phenomena is predictable enough that if you're driving on the freeway and all of a sudden the pack of cars ahead of you (and only those) seem awfully slow, you slow down and start scanning for the cop car... I wonder what it must be like for policemen - everywhere they go, people must seem like pristine, traffic law-abiding citizens. Maybe that's why they hide out in those favorite ticketing places - to catch a glimpse of reality without the presence of a black and white car.

And always wondered who gives a cop a ticket for speeding? It's not a rare occurrence to see them speeding somewhere. Sure, it could be official business, but the question of the day is who enforces the law for the law?
