Softly, softly, catchee motorist

I saw some very sneaky highway patrolmen today. They’d evidently finished their country run early, so they parked their shiny (flouro-orange stripes, reflective chequerboard, headgear) pursuit car in a medical clinic in Wanneroo where the garden clutter hid it from the road, and taken a portable laser speedgun out to a bus stop in front of it. Who looks at people loitering at a bus stop? They waved people to a stop instead of using der blinkenlights, so there was no warning twinlkle in the distance.

I was glad to have been paying attention at the time. Plenty of other people hadn’t been; they were doing a roaring trade. (-:
