Then how do you suggest we get rid of bad laws?
Civic disobedience and public protest have gotten rid of lots of bad
laws in the past.
I'm not advocating that people drive in a way that is a danger to others
and in many cases the Police are justified acting harshly with dangerous
offenders but to use a one size fits all approach without considering
whether or not there is any danger is nuts.

Yes, they are stupid laws. But stupid laws should apply to famous people the same as the rest of us.

A good driver should be able to prevent it.

I can't speak for anyone else, but I go out of my way *not* to watch it :)

So, the coppers arresting him and confiscating the car was all part of ACA's
script, was it?
He's being charged on Summons. You don't cop such a penalty for a non event.

In my not so humble opinion I think the bloke is a few oranges short of a
three quarter time snack if he was thinking it was an okay thing for him to
do and *not* cop any flak for it.
