    how come the vehicle and driver is released, if there is a injured person and in hospital, the driver needs to be remanded. and vehicle needs to be in police custody.

    Having escorts and barging their way through traffic with no regard for safety or convenience of others has become a status symbol enjoyed by those with big egos and small brains.

    Doing her job: opening two re-built schools and inspecting a prosthesis unit in a hospital, paid for in part by the U.S. I don't see the Chinese ambassador opening schools.

    Those were the days the DPL drivers had road courtesy, Now the big Monteros and Jeeps with DPL plates are as bad as the ministerial vehicles.

    In this country Might is Right and its an unofficial basic road rule that larger vehicles have priority over the smaller vehicles, and VIP vehicles have priority over all others!!.
