Where are the Police?

You know, for as long as I have lived in Daejeon, (going on five years) I have yet to see the police pulling over someone for speeding, running a red light, or any number of other traffic violations.

I’m sure it happens all the time; maybe I just miss seeing it when it does happen.

I have seen a lot of squad cars cruising the streets with their lights flashing but not engaged in some high-speed pursuit of a felon or speedster (once I asked a Korean friend about this; he told me it was to show people they were on the job).

About the only folks in a hurry with their lights a flashing and sirens screaming are the tow trucks racing to the scene of an accident.

    People run red lights and stop signs all the time where I live. The cops would rather hang out at the local Dunkin Donuts than ticket them.
