Tickets on strike days are a ‘grey area’

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

Re: Age is relative, even for drivers (Our View, Mar. 21)

I agree with the position the News took.

The man had a spotless driving record, and as the column said, it was during a teacher’s strike, so one would expect no children to be around, therefore the regular 50 km/h speed limit would be in effect. Unfortunately for him, that wasn’t the case.

I would like to know how many other people thought that was the case too? If it wasn’t this “grey area” day, then sure, he deserves a ticket – but in this case, no.

Officer discretion was used correctly at this time.
