Where are traffic cops when they’re really needed?

Where are the traffic police when they are needed?

The number of heavy vehicles, Golden Arrow buses, trucks, two- and three-trailer heavy vehicles with drivers talking or texting whilst hardly stopping at the traffic lights or speed bumps is out of hand. It is dangerous, stupid and irresponsible to behave like this on a main road.

Traffic officers are visible when they are issuing violation tickets for parking across a white line, but quite invisible when they are really needed.
