  1. These including the drivers of the rich and the privileged think and act as if they are above the law. This is the fault of upbringing by their parents who I think should be held responsible for the act of their minor children.

  2. Besides, our laws are lax, corruption is rampant and justice is never fully delivered. Hence, the rich and famous tend to get away with almost anything.
