One summer, Chengdu traffic policeman Tan Qiao stopped a tricycle.

The cart was full of twigs and firewood, with a person and a dog sitting on it.

The uncle pulling the cart said that his father, mother, elder brother, wife, and children have all passed away, and only the younger brother sitting on the firewood is left. He is a fool.

It seems that all the misfortunes in the world have fallen on the uncle. Despite this, the uncle is still optimistic and positive, and said to Officer Tan: Look forward.

  This scene comes from "Tan Talks about Traffic", a program that shows the world's various forms of law popularization.

The host of the show, Officer Tan, has also become a popular "star" because of his humorous style.

  After several years of silence, Tan Qiao, who took off his police uniform, "debuted" again.

Recently, in the challenge of "On behalf of driving in one day, Officer Tan will send you home", Tan Qiao has completed a challenge of sending a car-hailing master home.

"Do you have a driver's license?" "I'll show you the way, don't watch the navigation is gone." During the challenge, the golden sentence frequently appeared, and Tan Qiao was spit out by the Chongqing driver: "Why are you still turning off the engine on the ground?"

  This kind of program is exactly the same as the original "Tan on Traffic", and finally ended up in traffic safety publicity.

Today, Tan Qiao has opened many social platform accounts and has a huge fan base.

""Tan Talks on Traffic" has been done for so many years, and I hope to continue it in another form." Talking about the work done now, Tan Qiao said, "Whether it is for traffic or all safety-related fields other than traffic, I think if I can popularize it, I will use my own methods to popularize it."

Suddenly stop broadcasting

  Tan Qiao embarks on the road of self-healing

  After the broadcast of "Tan Talks on Traffic", a large number of loyal audiences have been gained.

When the show was gaining momentum, CCTV, Beijing TV and Hunan TV all offered Tan Qiao an olive branch, but Tan Qiao refused.

At that time, he just wanted to do his job well, to be a propagandist of law popularization.

  In 2018, when "Tan Talks About Traffic" was broadcast for 13 years, this program was suddenly suspended.

There are different opinions on the reasons for the suspension. Some people say that it is because of the progress of society, and there are fewer and fewer people who violate traffic; others say that it is because of the development of the city, and there are fewer and fewer environments suitable for filming of the program; others say that it is because Tan Qiao got it. depression……

  In Tan Qiao's view, these reasons are all.

In difficult times, Tan Qiao, who was diagnosed with depression, thought that a situation like "Fugui" could encourage everyone to "look forward". Why not?

  After many setbacks, Tan Qiao finally found the "Fugui" uncle and paid a return visit to the "Fugui" uncle.

Although the uncle "Fugui" lost his tooth, his positive and optimistic attitude has not changed. Uncle "Fugui" also started a family and had a daughter.

After the return visit, Tan Qiao helped the "Fugui" uncle to apply for subsistence allowances, visit them regularly, and subsidize his children to study.

by coincidence

  Realize the childhood "traffic police dream"

  He drove a taxi, worked as a construction worker, worked as a post and telecommunications worker...Before becoming a traffic policeman, Tan Qiao tried many occupations. He also worked in farm work and fed pigs in the army.

  In 1995, when Chengdu was recruiting traffic police, Tan Qiao's father saw the news and wrote to Tan Qiao about this opportunity.

"Didn't you want to be a traffic policeman before? Now there is a chance." At this time, Tan Qiao knew that his father remembered what he had said before.

  My father knew that Tan Qiao's memory of wanting to be a traffic policeman originated from an experience when Tan Qiao was in his teens.

At that time, a road roller was driving on the road. Next to it was a mother riding a bicycle carrying a little girl. The little girl was sitting upside down on the back seat.

As her mother braked, the little girl fell to the ground, just between the front and rear wheels of the road roller.

On the side of the road, passing pedestrians exclaimed, but at this time the master driving the road roller didn't know it. The rumbling sound had already covered the roadside exclamation, which was accompanied by a tragic traffic accident.

The exclamation of passers-by, the fainting of his mother, the ignorance of the master of the road roller...Tan Qiao, who was standing not far from the place where the incident occurred, witnessed all this with his own eyes, and the grief in his heart was beyond words.

  After returning home, Tan Qiao told his parents about this experience.

At that time, he told his parents: "It would be great if I were a traffic policeman!" Unexpectedly, in 1995, Tan Qiao was admitted and officially became a Chengdu traffic policeman, fulfilling his childhood "traffic police dream".

Tan Qiao was interviewed.

  From a small traffic policeman in his twenties to nearly half a hundred years after he left the police force, Tan Qiao has been on the road to publicizing traffic safety.

  Nowadays, more and more law popularization propaganda is carried out online.

"Old Chen of the Anti-fraud Policeman" opened the live broadcast with the belief that "one more person enters the live broadcast room, and one less person is deceived", which is hotly searched.

Tan Qiao also used to popularize the law with Lian Mai, an "anti-fraud police veteran Chen".

  As a safety observer of the Sichuan Road Traffic Safety Association, Tan Qiao will continue to promote knowledge about traffic safety.

He hopes that traffic safety propaganda will take root on each platform, so that the awareness of traffic safety will be deeply rooted in the hearts of the people.
