    Do you want to be a traffic cop in Thailand? Are you a good dancer? If you aren't, you won't stand a
chance.
    Traffic cops in Thailand dance as they direct traffic. These cops are good entertainers. They twist and
turn and make fancy movements with their white-gloved hands. Everyone agrees they help ease tension on the
roads. And because they make people smile and feel happy, the image of Bangkok policemen has improved by
leaps and bounds. As a result, motorists have become more cooperative and understanding. Odd as it may be,
it seems to work. Don't forget to also keep your eye on the road, though. If you don't, you might cause an accident. You can be sure the cops won't be dancing then.
