Police Car In the Mirror

Police Car Flashing Lights Here is a quick, random thought for today.

Why is it that I always look into the mirror when a police car passes by me from the oncoming lane? I do this every time one passes by and it is most often accompanied with a little sigh of relief as they keep driving.

The funny thing is that I do this despite trying to make sure I obey all traffic laws when I drive.

Here are a few reasons I could think of:

  • Guilty conscience?
  • Concerned I might run into the wrong police office at the wrong time?
  • A childhood fear of flashing blue lights?

What other reasons can you come up with? Any funny ones? Am I the only one that does this?
