Harassing others on the road is a cowardly act

On May 31, my son, whom I support because he’s stressed with a broken back, was harassed.

Driving his hard-earned scooter, he slowed for the 25 mph limit on Alta Street. It had just been changed to 30 mph. Young “adults” in a shiny, expensive black truck honked, tailgated and yelled. My son foolishly turned to reason with them, skidded and fell. His scooter is now out of alignment.

He is on crutches. He’ll recover, painfully. Unfortunately, the spoiled, overindulged bullies won’t. They’ll hate their conceited parents for not training them to face up to their wrong actions.
