I think it is a mix of opportunity and a deeply inappropriate emotional response to lockdown. If you have a set of fast wheels and are of a certain personality type the temptation to let it all hang out seems to be overwhelming.

There have as long as I can remember been boy/girl racer types and they will flout any rules to get their speed fix. Iím afraid to say the same types can be found on other types of transport, including bicycles. And though not nearly as lethal, they can still be dangerous.

The empty roads had encouraged people to drive like idiots. There was an upside in the early weeks though, apparently the police were given permission to chase cars (normally they are not allowed to for fear of causing a crash) and quite a few baddies got the shock of their lives when they got chased and arrested!
