Police Officer Confronting Prying Drivers

A German police officer’s response to drivers who slowed down and tried to photograph a fatal car accident in Bavaria has gone viral. The officer said he was illustrating the "bitter reality" of traffic fatalities.

In a video captured by broadcaster Bayerischer Rundfunk, an officer stopped two 'rubber neckers' caught trying to take pictures of the crash scene on an Autobahn near Nuremberg.

Stefan Pfeiffer asked the drivers where they were from, and then in response to their actions, asked if they wanted to take a closer look at the crash scene to illustrate a point.

"Come on, ill show you something," he said, urging the drivers to get out of their cars.

"Do you want to see the dead people - make pictures?

"There he is, he's lying there, do you want to see him? No, you don't want to see him? Then why do you make pictures?"

When each of the men refused his offer to witness the gruesome scene, Pfeiffer said: “Shame on you” before hitting them with a €128.50 fine.
