If you are stopped by the police and asked for your license , are you going to be smiling? What you say about this?

May be it is like this: They want you to smile atleast in the photo! And by the way, Its not that much strict in my place, when we are caught, the policeman himself smiles, which means he is expecting something.... When he smiles and scratches his head, we must understand that and fulfill his needs.

If it happens to me, I would smile at first. We have a regulation here that the police should smile and salute when excute the routiees. Why don't you smile as well? Keep smile all the time lol
