Grandfather should teach accepting responsibility

To the Editor:

Thank you to the Guilderland Police Department for ticketing dangerous drivers who violate the traffic laws, such as Devin Brent

Driving a considerable distance in the turning lane is extremely unsafe, imperiling the other, safe drivers on the road.  Devin and his grandfather should consider themselves very lucky that they only received a ticket, and that they did not cause a critical accident.

If Howard Brent wants to properly counsel his grandson, he should teach him not to commit dangerous and illegal actions, not to make excuses for such actions, and to accept responsibility for his actions.

When they go to court next month they should plead guilty to the ticket they received, and they should thank the Guilderland Police Officer for helping to keep the roads safe by giving tickets to dangerous drivers like Devin.
