Drivers, who have no idea how to behave in another country, are being sent a message that our laws cannot be flouted and that residents are fed to the back teeth with young Arab drivers racing-at deadly speed-around our streets. Were we to behave in the same way in their countries we would be locked up in an instant!
Interestingly, it is the long established Arab residents who are the angriest about their compatriots' behaviour!
The police are being very tough. If you don't have insurance, or a driving permit, your car will be immediately impounded. Last year the Met impounded cars to the value of £8 million!
This tough action needs to continue...the surprise is that the embassies don't proact and assist. This arrogant disregard for residents
shows the contempt we are now held in.
