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.
