Where do we draw the line with speeding offenses?

At what point is the state of Maine going to hand out a more severe punishment to bad drivers who continue to break the speed limits?

Cheryl Gilson clearly should no longer have had the privilege of driving, given the laundry list of offenses (“Maine mom accused of driving 124 mph with children can still drive,” April 9).

As the mother of a teenage driver, I’m concerned that they see examples like this in the news, which discredits the message we are trying to convey as parents. Driving over the speed limit is against the law.

She should have been charged as a criminal long before this incident just by the mere count of driving violations. Are we going to wait until she kills somebody?
