One day, Henry was driving his car when he approached an intersection. He didn’t stop and give way to the pedestrian walking on the crosswalk. The pedestrian was shocked because he almost got hit due to Henry’s dangerous behavior. A police officer who happened to be standing nearby witnessed the incident. Since Henry’s action violated traffic laws, the police officer pulled him over and gave him a ticket. Later, after arriving at his destination, Henry pulled into a parking space and got out of his car.

  有一天,亨利正開車駛近十字路口。他沒有停下來禮讓正在過斑馬線的行人。這位行人嚇了一跳,因為他差點因為亨利危險的行為而被撞。一名碰巧站在附近的警察目睹了這起事件。由於亨利的行為違反了交通規則,這名警察要求他停在路邊並開給他一張罰單。後來,抵達目的地之後,亨利將車停在停車格並下了車。
