Mark Owen has retired as a traffic police officer. He worked on some of the widest but busiest ways in the US. There are traffic police on duty twenty-four hours a day. Three people work in a day and each works for eight hours. During eight hours there are about three or four accidents. Here is Mark Owen talking about his job.

马克·欧文是一个交通警察,已经退休了。退休前,他在美国最宽阔最繁忙的道路上工作。那里的交警一天24小时值勤。一天有三个交警值勤,每人工作8个小时。在这8个小时期间,大约有三个或四个交通事故。这是马克·欧文谈论他的工作。

“I dealt with anyone in the accident who was hurt. That was the first thing. Then I had to get the traffic moving again.”

“在事故中,我首先要处理伤者。然后,必须让交通再次正常运行。”

Most accidents happen when people drive too fastespecially when the roads are wet. Sometimes accidents happen because the drivers don’t follow the rules. And it is more possible for drivers without safety belts to have accidents. Some drivers like to make a call or talk with people while they drive. It’s very dangerous.

特别是当路潮湿的时候,大多数事故都是因为车开的太快。有时候事故是因为司机不遵守交通规则,更有可能是司机没有系安全带引起的事故。一些司机开车的时候,喜欢打电话或与他人聊天,那是非常危险的。

Sometimes when I wrote a ticket to people, they would try to find a lot of excuses. One day, there was one guy who was driving too fast, and I wanted to write him a ticket. But he asked me not to, and explained that he was just testing out his car. What an excuse! People always say that when they are caught driving too fast. Of course he got the ticket. It was necessary for him to know that he had to follow the rules, not only for himself, but for others.

有时候当我写罚单时,他们总是试着要找到一些理由。一天,遇到有一个超速的家伙,我要给他开罚单,他要求我不要,并且解释说只是在测试他的车。这是什么理由!很多人超速驾驶,被抓到时候通常都会那么说。当然,他还是得到了一个罚单。他要明白遵守交通规则是十分必要的,不仅是为了他自己,还要为了别人。

I like my job. I had a different working day. I never knew what I was going to do the next day. And I met all kinds of people. I don’t think there are any other jobs that can give me that kind of felling.

我喜欢我的工作,每天的工作都是不同的。我从来都不知道第二天我将要做什么。这让我遇到许多不同的人。我不认为还有任何其他的工作,能给我这种感觉。
