Police Car

Editor’s explanation: Chinese words just like how to use “Police Car”. It always tries to name things via combination of some simple words instead of creating new words. Chinese characters ended up creating new ones from 2000years ago(Qin Dynasty), so generally you will just need to learn about 800 words in Chinese, you will be good to read all articles no matter how technology developed.
