Default Speed Traps

In the late 70's I lived in Belgium for a while. I was driving down one of their country roads - the ones that have 20 foot tall hedge rows on either side - and about 50 yards ahead a person wearing a shoulder to foot bright orange coat steps into the roadway and points to the side of the road with his right hand. His left hand was securely attahced to the pistol grip of a submachine gun strapped across his chest. He was a member of the Federal Police and wasn't stopping me for speeding - he wanted to check my "papers."

A LEO stepping out and waving me over for speeding is so much less exciting.
