The other day I was behind a car with diplomatic plates that was driving *exactly* the speed limit.  It occurred to me that if they wanted to speed, nobody could do anything about it anyway. Question Who's Online | Find Members | Private Messages

If you had diplomatic immunity, would you exploit it?

Diplomatic immunity isn't exactly immunity. It is codependant on the relationship between your government and the government of the country you are staying in. It is understood that the police will leave you alone, but it is also understood that if you do something wrong, your own government will remove you and deal with it. If not, the host government might just decide it wasn't worth it and arrest you anyway.

I probably wouldn't change much from how I behave right now. For the most part I'm a law abiding citizen, unless my conscience or an usually strong desire here and there take me in a different direction.

Yeah, probably, but not all the time. Everything in moderation.
