Dear Teenage Bicyclist

Hey kid. Assamatta u, eh? I realize you were in the bike lane and I realize that the light was green. Did you realize that I was already in the middle of a right hand turn when you decided to zoom through the intersection without looking around you? Was whatever you were listening to on your earbuds so loud that you were totally unaware of what was going on nearby?

I truly think you weren’t even aware of my van only two feet away from you as I slammed on the brakes to avoid hitting you. You just kept pedaling as fast as you could, never looking to the left or right.

I didn’t hit you, mahalo ke Akua. But please be more careful; someone else might.

    Kids think they’re immortal. Certain levels of higher reason don’t kick in until one’s mid-twenties (if at all – I know some people who *never* seemed to reach that point). Thank GOODNESS you were paying more attention to that lolo.
