Are policemen really that stupid?

by ivy on May 25th, 2001 LONDON, Britain - British police caused traffic chaos in the capital on Thursday while filming a video extolling the virtues of working for the traffic police.




Traffic was backed up for miles in all directions during the peak morning rush hour as the police closed off a section of the busy Hammersmith flyover on the main A40 highway from the west into the city for three hours to make the video.



"As part of our drive to recruit an extra 1,050 police officers the Metropolitan Police Services are currently producing a video which presents a wide range of career opportunities," a spokesman for Scotland Yard said.



He said the section being filmed on Thursday had been on the work of the Special Escort Group -- motorcycle outriders who escort dangerous criminals, celebrities, royalty and wide loads around the city's crammed roads.



"We apologize for the inconvenience caused by this delay," he said, noting that an investigation was underway into why filming had overrun by 40 minutes.
