Could you help me to find the meaning of this sentence?
"They ignore rules in order to see what they can get away with."
I especially didn't understand the phrase "can get away with."
Is this means to see what will be the consequences or just how to escape.
get away with something phrasal verb
1 to not be caught or punished when you have done something wrong : Watch Frank – he’ll cheat if he thinks he can get away with it.
No one insults my family and gets away with it!
