Expect gangs of cops cracking down on low-hanging-fruit minor infractions.

During the week, do not break the speed limit on a sunny day on any road with a big lay-by where police can do paperwork. If an oncoming car or truck flashes you with high beams, it means there is a speed trap ahead.

Watch out for hidden cops near stop signs too, where you must come to a complete stop. But feel free to go through the first seconds of a red light as normal. Don't bother stopping at zebra crossings either. Those things are not policed.

I give up. There are so many things wrong with this poster.

I thought it was a new idol group in the police theme.

Eh, I'm curious which ones you see are wrong.

That's how I was done by Chiba's finest. Was it the out-of-prefecture plates?

I will not be driving until this is over - You can and WILL get ticketed for the most minor infractions. Not worth losing your Gold Licence over and the insurance savings it brings. Police out in full force this morning on my way (in a taxi) to work.

Indeed, it is a idol group, but not a new one.

There are some that would consider Kanako Momota dimples to be considered unnatural, Anakin....

Which in all honesty, comes some way to explain the Poster, InspectorGadget

We encourage to stop running red lights, speeding while watching a movie on your iPhone, passing buses in no passing zones, speeding inches beside kids on bikes, honking and harassing slower drivers and hit and runs.

Surely the could have got the Miniskirt Police to do this poster and also do an accompanying tune.

I'm still waiting for them to enforce the no tailgaiting rule.

Smart to leverage Momoiro Clover Z “popularity”, so many teeth, more than their fair share, senior family members would countenance.

However could this campaign/approach not be a tad superficial?

Surely the fees Momoiro Clover Z management agency demanded could have been focused/redirected to areas, roads, highways within communities that suffer from a high degree of accidents.

Try braking.

It would help if they built pavements/sidewalks.

So for a week, while cars at a major intersection 100 metres away run red lights, left hook cyclists and fail to clear the intersection with their usual vigor, about a dozen officers'll stand at quiet, out of the way crossroads, and politely ask drivers to follow traffic regulations.
