In recent news, Frederick and Sheri Holton of Brookfield, Connecticut were arrested for allowing their two kids to ride in the rear section of their 1982 Chevrolet Corvette. While the area behind the two seats may have been large enough to comfortably occupy the seven- and eight-year-old children, the Corvette is still , legally and factually, considered to be a two-seater vehicle.
According to a Fox network affiliate in Connecticut, Frederick was driving the unregistered and uninsured Corvette with a suspended license. There’s no doubting that the parents acted irresponsibly and should face repercussions, more so on the father than the mother. Mr. Horton faces charges of illegal operation of the vehicle as well as risk of injury to the children, and Mrs. Horton faces charges of reckless endangerment.
We’re not sure what the penalty will be for this incident, but it would make for great discussion in the comment section below.
