Default Calling Italians

Take a look at this picture:

Was this copper really booking this bike? - I've often wondered especially as there is a moped parked on the path.

It was taken in Como, northern Italy.

Looks like the officer was dialing a cell phone to me. I've never seen a cop write a parking ticket anywhere in Italy. Hell, they park on the sidewalk over there.

I think the officer was phoning for the tow-truck clamping outfit, or getting advice as to whether there had been a traffic violation!

I think the officer was using his/her GPS to see if they knew where they were.

The officer is thinking...do I want Polenta tonight for dinner? Maybe Rissoto Milanese?

Como is where near where my grandfather came from in a little town called Corponno.

I think the police officer is thinking: "Now let's see, do I spend this month's paycheck on a beautiful bike like this, or at Victoria's Secret? In fact, how much money DO I have anyway?

I think that the officer is trying to work his/her way through the menu settings on his/her new digital camera and is getting a headache.
