Leniency commended, given driver’s record

Letter to the editor on the 100-year-old driver who police caught speeding through a school zone

Re: Speeding 100-year-old attracts national attention (News, Mar. 21)

I’d heard that the centenarian told the officer that he understood the teachers were on strike, and the schools were therefore closed.

Kudos to the officer for her lenience, given the driver’s clean record – doubly so because of the understandable nature of the infraction.

And kudos to the driver. If only more of us could follow his example.
