It's the only conclusion I can draw. I have had a driver's licence for almost 6 months now, and in that time I have seen more Police cars than I had in my whole life up to that point. And I'm not exaggerating- I see at least one every time I go driving. I don't live next to a police station, nor do I see them in the same place. They just seem to appear out of nowhere when I least expect it, every time without fail.
Not that it's a problem- I am a genuine, law-abiding citizen and have very little to worry about with the Police. But despite that, it's human nature to get a little anxious when you see a Police car drive past. Even more so when you see one do a full u-turn at an intersection and proceed to follow you for the next few minutes, before disappearing at a corner. True story! It scared the bejesus out of me! I wasn't doing anything illegal, but this car basically started tailing me, like in the movies. You would get pretty nervous too.
So I have been trying to reason with myself why these things are happening. Maybe it could be that I notice much more when I'm driving, but I think it's far too much of a coincidence to be that. And so I have come to the realisation that there must be something about me that brings these cars out of hiding, just to be near me. Let's face it, I am for some reason or other, irresistible to them! It's not platonic either, it must be a physical thing. Maybe it's the scent that attracts them. Who knows? Whatever happens, I'm not going to be doing anything illegal soon, because the moment I did I'm sure one of these cars would just happen to pop out and nab me. Or come on to me. Or both?!!?
All joking aside, it's fairly incredible how often I see these cars. I guess it can't be a bad thing that there is some active protection of the community going on. But I can't help but get a little anxious every time I see those familiar stripes!
