World's crappiest drivers - completely void of the most basic knowledge of physical laws compiled with a  lack of courtesy makes for an unpleasant driving experience at all times.

This is what happens when you have a  society that pays no heed to laws or personal safety.  You can pretty much guarantee that neither of these reckless kids have any respect for rule of law, and have grown up knowing that they can do whatever they want with no consequences...which is the result of having an impotent police force that does not enforce laws.  Poor parenting also plays a part.
