A wave from a police officer. Maybe he was acknowledging the fact that I had moved over to the left to let the right-turning cars turn, or maybe he was appreciative of the lights I had going on at my back.

I did -- I thought that must be the way to see the wave, rather than just the hood of a cop suv

I don't see a wave and yes I tried to click the play button too. I thought he was cut off by a police car.

Heh. I can't even tell that the cop is waving in the driver window. I wimped out today and took the train. But I'll definately get my miles in since I rode in from home yesterday. Respect for the friendly police.

Edit: I didn't click on the play button in the image. What do I win?

Yeah, but I bet you did the same thing I did and moved the cursor over there before realizing it wouldn't work!

I was wondering why I needed to watch 23 minutes of video to see a wave, then I clicked play and thought, oh...
