The weather, and the skies, were really scary this whole afternoon. The Pasadena cops and whatever rent-a-cops they hired did a damn good job dealing with traffic. Of all the things cops do, I don't have a complaint about traffic direction. Hope these guys are OK.

Well done policemen.

To L.A.'s credit most parking enforcement/traffic directing is handled by people w/o guns.

Pretty sure they were alright, the collision must've taken place very close to the ground.
