Dear Poll: Do Stars Get Preferential Driving Treatment?

We hear of celebrities getting in a car accident, or getting pulled over for DUI charges almost every day. Lindsay Lohan is notorious for "paparazzi generated" fender benders and her pal Paris Hilton is constantly being photographed driving away from night clubs with friends piled into every crevice of her vehicle.

Fame seems to buy you a ticket to ride in Hollywood, which doesn't provide the younger generation with any sense of consequence. Just yesterday, Jessica Smith, 19, from MTV's Laguna Beach, joined many of her peers in the "under arrest club" after being cited for driving under the influence and causing an injury crash in LA. So all you drivers out there, do you think celebrities get preferential treatment from law enforcement simply because they are in the public eye?">Source

Yes absolutely and it's ridiculous...... it's really unfortunate and outrageous that justice can be bought for a price.

Of course they do! They get paid millions of dollars and basically do very little work. Our society is so effed up and backwards

anyone with the right lawyer (read: enough money) gets away with more than the average kid off the street. thing is it's really no help to the celeb in the long run. they end up is rehab or dead. sooner or later you have to pay the piper.

It makes me sick when I hear about these people getting trashed and then driving. Vivica A. Fox was busted last week and for some reason she's still driving around! I don't understand why they don't get an automatic license suspension! & the fines they give them amount to pocket change for someone like Paris Hilton, and allow them to treat the situaiton like a joke or inconvenience. They should have community service that makes them come face to face with victims of drunk drivers.
