Description

We have seen multiple teens throughout the week riding their bicycles in the road, doing wheelies, impeding traffic, and just being a danger to cars and to themselves on Front Street and the side streets. I'm totally okay with them riding in the breakdown lane or riding with traffic obeying the laws, but I almost hit some kid who flipped me off while I was out with my wife on our way to dinner. Had he not been trying to wheelie in between parallel parked cars with his idiot friends he might not have come close to be coming road kill. Unfortunately, one of these kids is going to get hit soon and killed. It is just a matter of time. The worst part was watching Chicopee PD drive by without saying anything or even attempting to remedy the situation. If I end up running one of them over, I don't want to have to waste time in court showing dash cam footage and paying my lawyer because some idiot kid couldn't ride a bike properly. The last thing I want is some lady screaming at me in court about how I killed her baby even though these kids are smart enough to pedal bicycles and understand basic consequences. Do something before I'm filing insurance claims to fix the human sized dent on the hood of my car.
