But the Portland Police are set to change that. On a regular drizzly day, Portland Police Traffic Officer Mark James caught a car doing 52 in a 35.
He quickly set out to catch the speeder, but was interrupted by a mother duck and her ducklings taking a stroll in the middle of the road.
The kind-hearted officer safely escorted the family of fowl into a ditch where they promptly swam away. And so did the speeder.
Now, the day old video has gone viral, quickly garnering over 100,000 hits.
