Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Am I the only one who has a hard time picturing gang members, intent on breaking every law in the books, conscientiously following every law about driving and insurance? I doubt that enforcement of insurance laws is very effective, as there were 9% uninsured drivers in the state 5 years ago.

My big question is if you're going to travel somewhere else to comitt crime (and if you do the stuff you're after is easily marketable electronics basically, things that you can swap for cash or drugs with noone asking too many questions) If you havent got a car, how are you going to get stuff back, Stations are one of the more likely places to run across CCTV, and your average gang member is going to feel a little exposed and suspicious  carrying a 50" plasma tv on a train carriage. (plus theres a bottleneck at the exit where there are very few avenues of escape. so for the average criminal, trains are the last place they want to be, (with a few exceptions)Plus a lot of gang membership is about status, you stay in your own teritory, because thats the place where people know not to mess with you, Unless you're wandering out to pick up your major score from the dealer up the chain. (And generally thats frowned upon at any height above pretty near street level.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
