Reader reminds all Canadians to make sure to check the expiry date on their provincial driver’s license
To the Editor,
On Thursday, Feb. 18 I was followed by a police vehicle from the Curling Club corner in Port Perry. Needless to say, I didn’t speed.
I expected it to turn off several times but how surprised was I when it pulled into my driveway behind me. A pleasant officer emerged and announced that I was driving with an expired licence...since March, 2015.
I was also told that had I been stopped for an infraction, road-side, I could have been penalized $350 and lose points. It remains unclear why my plate was “run” but I’m very grateful for such a courteous gesture. No longer does our darling Government send a friendly reminder to get your picture taken.
Let’s see...Debit $1 for a stamp OR credit $350 for a fine?
Tough Decision! Please check the expiry date of your driver’s licence.
