RID­ING MAD­NESS

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

I THOUGHT it down­right, stupid and dan­ger­ous when I saw a cy­clist rid­ing flat out on the road with no hands while tex­ting on his phone.

Another day I saw a woman rid­ing a bike on a busy road with a child in a seat hang­ing on at the back of her. At least she did not have a mo­bile in her hand.

Both riders were rid­ing par­al­lel to a bike path.

But the next young fella takes the prize of be­ing the vil­lage idiot. He was on his skate­board with­out a hel­met, tex­ting on his phone while rid­ing on the foot­path par­al­lel to Can­ning High­way.

If you are one of these peo­ple, think of your fam­ily when a po­lice­man knocks on the door to tell them there has been an ac­ci­dent. FRANK GRANGER, Ap­ple­cross.
