Please check for grammar errors in my essay :
Sometimes there was a certain laxity in the curfew enforcement : some people were stepping across their threshold, exchanging a few words with neighbours, gliding down the street, hanging around the corner where the grocery store had just half-opened its iron shutters to take them in. In old downtown, around the market, the streets were mostly sheltered and almost as bustling as in ordinary days. There were even yellow cabs and other vehicles whooshing recklessly along the main roads. Unfortunately, if they stumbled upon a patrol car, while floutting the rules of the curfew, even in a quiet day, the drivers might have either their driving license, or the keys of their vehicle or the latter on the whole taken away. If they attempted to skirt the check, they might get the into more serious trouble.
