      Apparently there is another guy who is called Rabbit - perhaps the people that are asking are aware of this and that's why they are asking the question, based on the vehicle plate.

    We have become a complex society spiral into chaos. Why all this choas? The birth of urban blight. People are moving to these islands at a rate that far exceeds the capacity of the islands to assimilate them. As a result a car-dependent lifestyle has been created with an ever-increasing demand for ROAD SAFETY AND TRAFFIC LAWS/REGULATIONS.

    With that said, it is time for the elected leaders of these islands to plan and execute some traffic and road safety laws. Enough talk about spending money on economic expansion. How about road safety discussions and investing in speed cameras to detect the arrogance in driving that endanger our daily lives.
