On the sidewalk, some people wearing police uniforms were asking questions to people who were riding mopeds. What a busy scene on the sidewalk. Probably the police’s tickets made these people feel anxious. They began to debate loudly with the policeman. I don’t know why, but the situation looked terrible. There were a lot of strangers who were focused on them because of their noise level. At the same time, it was time for work, I immediately ran to work in case I was late.

Asking questions = questioning

Frustrated:  very angry and upset at the same time.
