Take responsibility for your driving incidents

Dear editor,

My husband and I have proudly taught our children to be kind at all times, be honest, take responsibility for their actions, admit when they have made a mistake, and what an apology means.  Our daughter is now driving, she does not have a fancy car, but it is her car and she takes pride in it. Our daughter knows it is a privilege to drive, not an entitlement, and with that privilege there is a responsibility to respect the road and also other drivers.   While parked at Wal-Mart over the past two weeks on three separate occasions she has had the following happen to her car: 1. Someone backed into her car and put the hitch receiver of their vehicle right through her front bumper cutting a square cut-out in the bumper and a large scrape. 2. Then she had someone randomly egg her car, and hers was not the only car egged in the parking lot.  3. Then on Tuesday, March 29 someone scraped her entire driver side rear corner panel, leaving lots of white paint behind and damaging her car.   In both situations with her car being hit, NO note was left by the guilty parties, and the drivers just drove away.   Are these people now scraping bright green paint off their vehicles and feeling NO shame?  Hitting someone’s vehicle and driving away is called a “Hit and Run.” How shameful not all people are honest, and sadly another life lesson we need to teach our children.
