Actually this guy was on his way to visit sick children at Georgetown University Hospital. If he can bring a moment of joy to a sick child, more power to him!

How unique for this good Samaritan. How unfortunate on the license plate issue. Maybe he should have cleared his plans with public safety or someone.

Probably a speculator who went over the edge for fear they might actually regulate that market.

Anybody dressing like Batmam who also drives a Lamborghini deserves to have his privilege to drive a vehicle permanently suspended.
