    The fact that he is famous is totally irrelevant. The points that are relevant are: 1. The driving in this country is appaulling. 2. 4x4 drivers are the worst offenders The driving requires such an overhaul; booking people for speeding really isn?t going to help very much, speeding makes a bad situation worse .. we need to stop the bad situations in the first place. A good place to start would be to teach people to drive as a part of a community of drivers .. Lane Control; Mirrors; Indication; Road Markings; Watching the road not inside the car; Preparing to leave a motorway etc. 4x4 drivers should have to have a special licence .. they are bigger than everyone else, so they just go .. Hey! You guys can see everything up there, down here our vision is obstructed because of BIG VEHICALS .. BRAINLESS! Not to mention if your car hits something, it does a LOT MORE DAMAGE than my little car .. THINK!!
