A not so shining example.
If I was a generation or two younger this would irk me a lot more. They've made getting a driver's licence tougher for the young than facing up to a 3 month jail (makes more sense than the correct gaol spelling) term, and will be on them quicker than a tonne of bricks if do do something evil like putting blue LED windscreen washers on their car, but the old generation can just slap a bit of tape on their tail lights and drive around with their numberplate worn into invisibility despite a constant bombardment of advertising warning motorists about their number plates for the last decade.
The old should be setting a good example to the young. They moan about the young ones speeding but it's their parents that have demonstrated to them as they grow that it's fine to speed wherever they drive and that a stop sign doesn't really mean stop.
