These guys thinks they are over the law, so with enough money in there pockets they can managed every "problem" in there way. You can see this attitude every weekend on Lincoln street at night, when you have a luxury car (or in most of the cases daddys car) you want to be seen in it, so the Lincolnroad is the catwalk. There are no streets in this country where you can really try out the power of a porsche or another sportcar. The most (young) drivers hadn't any experience to drive those cars and when they go crazy at night most of them ended in the morgue.
