one time i was in the passenger seat of a car and my friend was driving. ahead of our car was a cop car. we were at a weird intersection where you're not allowed to turn left(it was kinda dangerous). my friend wanted to turn left because it would be fastest way to get to the place we were headed. i warned against it seeing as a cop was right in front of us. I then said to him "I bet the cop will just turn left"(bear in mind he wasn't signalling and you're only allowed to go straight on this street).
what do you think happened next? the cop takes the left turn, again without signalling, very casually - no sirens or anything. my friend and I were left flabbergasted.
