  • Yep, some parts of South America have sleeping policeman calqued into Spanish - the others always guffaw when I tell them.

  • I've heard sleeping policeman calqued in a few languages.
    e.g. Indonesian polisi tidur.

  • My work station in a previous job sat next to a crackling and busy console/radio that monitored all radio communications by the municipal field employees. The woman office administrator of the Public Works department hailed the roads supervisor to inquire "Are we speed-humping today?" The radio went dead for a time, except for muted and distant guffaws and choking belly-laughs. The poor man at the other end never answered.

  • Enjoyable profession indeed.

    BTW, Have you heard Speed-Humps referred to as "sleepin' policemen?"
