if I was a Chinese traffic cop, I'd likely be dead by now

Reuters reports that state media in China has revealed that, according to an eight-city survey, the life expectancy of a Chinese traffic cop in the city is 43.

pollution seems to be the primary culprit, though stress, traffic noise and standing in the sun for long periods of time also appear to be contributors.

thank God I usually take along a lawn chair when I'm outside.
