Day 2 Commute: We met a police officer September 9, 2009

The goal this morning was to leave earlier as the presenters were 30 minutes late yesterday. Goals are not always realized. Well, that and if one is 30 minutes late, is leaving 5 minutes earlier good enough? That’s ok, I think we left later anyway. We did take a different road, but there were still three lanes in a place for two and or four lanes and we were only involved in one incidence of road rage, so it was far less eventful than yesterday…until we got into the city.

From everything we have heard (not so sure I should blog about that so let’s chat in person sometime) it is best to not meet the police here if you can help it. As we were weaving around a corner, a police officer waved his baton and motioned for our driver to pull over. After a handshake, a production of our driver’s credentials and a short conversation between the police officer and our driver, we were on our way – but not before a quick, knowing wink from the driver to us in via the rear-view mirror.
