Part of my drive to work includes snaking my way through the streets of downtown Houston. I love it. I now know where things are even though I don’t go to them.
Lately, I’ve noticed the police on horses have a larger presence on my route. At first I thought it was because of the rodeo. Then I realized my route is nowhere in the vicinity of the rodeo. Then I thought it might be for parking meter violators or parking lot security. But today I saw them in action. They are looking for speeders. Here is how it works:
Cop on Horse sits at Block A. He sees a car that is speeding. He uses his shoulder walkie-talkie to radio ahead to Cop on Horse sitting at Block C. Cop on Horse at Block C pulls car over. How does he do this? He and the horse walk in front of the car.
I wonder how the horse feels about this?
