Yesterday I saw a pair of policemen riding motorcycles on my way to work (the first time I saw riding police in VIC). Both were wearing sunnies. It struck me as odd since it was an overcast day. It wasn't even glary, but actually rather gloomy. This morning, same time and same location, I saw a triplet of policemen on their motorcycles. All three of them wearing sunnies. This time it was actually raining and therefor pretty dark - I would certainly NOT have wanted to restrict my vision by wearing dark sunglasses! Do they all wear sunnies? Why? Do they just want to look cool and more serious? Or is it a safety requirement - are they some kind of special dark tinted glasses? (Now I'm making up some interesting stories in my head) I don't understand why three adults would voluntarily wear sunglasses in rain.
