A Punishable Need for Speed

Kyle Busch was in the news this week for his need for speed off the race track. Cited at driving 128 mph in a 45mph zone, Bush is facing speeding and reckless driving charges. My father called me with his opinion. He felt Busch needs to be punished and should be suspended from racing for a short period of time. I asked my father if he thought it was worse for him to be speeding than the average citizen. He thought yes- due to his position in the industry, he should be held to a higher standard of conduct. I followed up by asking if the neighbor down the street received the same speeding ticket, would my father have the same opinion? Should the neighbor not be allowed to go to work? Should the principal arrested for DWI not be allowed to be a principal? Should Montel Williams not be allowed to work?

Ultimately it will be up to the racing organization whether they suspend Busch. However, many will have different opinions on how the law should respond in these situations. Do we hold those in certain professions to higher standards of conduct?
