The June 5 story Meet Marco Rubio, Miami driver glosses over Marco and Jeanette Rubio’s irresponsible driving record. Their 17 traffic infractions over 18 years is hard to dismiss. Four-figure fines and a combined four trips to driving school indicate a pattern of disregard for the law.
Rubio and his wife should apologize for their immature sense of entitlement rather than use the revelation as an opportunity to raise campaign funds. My partner and I have lived here nearly nine years and — knock wood — have never had a single moving violation. To shame all of us who obey the law by calling us “Miami drivers” deflects attention from where it should be — squarely on the shoulders of repeat lawbreakers like the Rubios.
