How old is too old?

Two teenage boys were cited for racing their cars up Sullivan Road Tuesday even though one driver said the 48-year-old witness was "too old" and shouldn't be believed, according to a Spokane Valley Police Department press release.

The witness called police at 12:40 p.m. to report seeing two cars speeding north on Sullivan and that one cut him off and nearly made him crash near the I-90 overpass. The two ran through a stop sign at Wellesley and entered the East Valley High School parking lot, the witness reported.

The school resource officer contacted the two boys. One of the drivers had an instructional permit and the other had an intermediate license that prohibits passengers under the age of 20. Both cars had passengers, police said.

One driver was cited for reckless driving and no valid operator's license. The other was cited for racing and violation of an intermediate license restriction.
