I feel sorry for the 17 year old driver who hit the policeman. He/she is probably traumatised for life, will be getting treated like a terrorist by the police, and will be up in court for attempting to kill a member of the police by Sunday.
2. morale of the story? leave the cat alone
it will run away from traffic when that gets too close and then it will be fine
intervening could have meant death and a pileup
3. I love cats and own several of them...
but the freeway is no place to stop and rescue cats...sorry. People are more important than cats - again sorry.
Also, Israel is the only country I know where people stop in the middle of traffic to talk to friends. Could you who do that, please stop it!
May the brave volunteer recover fully.
