If that picture isn't a rare thing to see, you guys have some impressively lax traffic laws. Most places would end up taking that man's license away for endangering the lives of his children. At the very least I hope you guys are diligent with pothole repairs. Though it'd probably make for a hilarious youtube video once they hit one.
