The Ruler of Dubai drives his own car without any security at all.
The car has a Registration Number and a valid number plate as well.
The wind shields and the windscreens are not heavily tinted, either.
THINK A MINUTE!

In Philippines where they are fighting a war with Mindanao terrorists, President Aquino is leading from the front regarding this aspect. No sirens or high speeds.

For heavens sake at-least now stop the whisking these so called VIPs at unsafe speeds. The urgency needed by the ordinary people when moving about on roads, is equally important to that of VIPs. Please remember VIP that you get the curse of all the people on the road, when you get the people go to the drains because you have to pass through. You have the authority to stop this nonsense. So do it.

Please do as I do, show the middle finger and don't let them pass breaking rules. Let them pass only if there is space and speeds match.

NO !! Exercise ur franchise to vote properly. Bring in people of class NOT from the gutters.. Little do these POLITICIANS realize that they were just like any other, before they were voted IN. The same votes can vote them OUT too... BUT WE citizens need to know who can work for US. YES they are community reps...who hold office because of the common mans' votes...

A close follow-up should be done, whether this culprit be released or not, as he is the Presidential Security Division.

absolute thuggery
abuse of power at the highest levels
very dangerous and arrogant driving
with no respect nor value for human life
If for some reason a driver on the road cannot
make way or is slow
the abuse is profanity
people are shacked by this type of rude and dastardly behaviour
got to stop this nonsense

Why should these useless politicians get so much privileges in a poor country like Sri lanka? What benefits do they provide to the country in return? General public are powerless to change this culture. But people can show their disapproval by not voting at the next election. If majority of the country stop voting at the general elections message will go through to the politicians and to the whole world. Now it's the time for collective action not the the criticism.

Lets see whether this lady is sent to a foreign hospital using the personal money of the VVIP. Lets see whether the critically injured lady and family are paid compensation using the personal money of the VVIP. If this does not happen, lets hope that this VVIP and his family are cursed for generations.

This is all because politicians, think that their lives and responsibilitie s are significantly more important than the rest of us. Only the people can change this and show them that they cannot survive without our support.

Vehicles parked on either side of zebra crossings, obstructing the view of both drivers and pedestrians is a very common sight in our country. If the police catch the offenders and bring them to book, instead of playing hide and seek at open stretches of roads with their speed guns, many lives could be saved.
