so now people complain about driving too slow with children around?

how many people have actually passed a driving test and still don't use turn signals? what does being a diplomat have to do with it?

Diplomats have to take drivers test and pass a road test here. They must cary insurance and the must pay their parking tickets.

The Diplomatic Reciprocity Act - or something like that - ensures that we only treat their diplomats as well as they treat ours. While African diplomats are not known for their social graces or ethical business practices (he was driving a BMW, probably), they do know that if they do something stupid, there are 100s of their countryman lined up to take their job.
