16. Frankfurt, perhaps. I never go there.
But Munich? I saw several hundred cops there once for the Defense Minister's meeting. A couple of thousand were there in protest.

Otherwise, nah, I rarely see the German cops. French either while I traveled for six weeks there this summer.

Come to think of it, I rarely saw Japanese police either.

In the US they'll pull you over for going 65 on a 55 MPH road! The Germans and French can babysit themselves in that regard.
