Warnings help to correct bad behaviour

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)

“The purpose (of traffic enforcement) is not punitive, but preventative and corrective.” Thank you, Saanich police. Statements like this should make everyone proud to be Canadian.

Militant socialists aspire to degrade our legal system into a clumsy, coercive weapon, without due respect for context and the bigger picture. Ageism belongs in the garbage with other prejudices borne of ignorance. When justice becomes blind and stupid, we will no longer live in a free country.
