Looking at the very interesting snaps, it's clear our officer is certainly very much over being on duty. One wonders if the traffic officer is hiding to get a better glimpse of oncoming motorists, or simply needs a time out after a long day of work.

Either way, the lazy cop definitely has no regrets and is blissfully oblivious to any onlookers.

Mzansi says it's not legal for cops to hide while trapping

The questionable snaps definitely had locals amazed. It seems many aren't convinced that law enforcement officers are legally allowed to hide from oncoming traffic as depicted. Still, others worried for the sleepy cop's safety.

More silly behaviour from police officers has Mzansi busting

In more news about local cops, Briefly News previously reported that cops are often not as brave as people expect them to be. In a recent video shared online, two very scared cops can be seen overcome with fear as they head into a graveyard where there was a noise complaint.

In the super hilarious video clip, the officers who are armed with torches and their firearms, seem to be walking into the graveyard when all of a sudden they hear or see something that causes them to run as fast as they can out of the spooky area.
