Sounds like an idiot. If he actually works for a magazine I could see where it could cost him his job. The last thing a publication would need is the liability and embarassment caused by someone on their staff driving recklessly while doing their job. I'm sure it's happended often enough in the past, but I can't see how a company could tolerate or afford it anymore.
