The Next Generation

This is sort of a follow-up to recent post about the changing Connecticut roadways --

This past Saturday, I was out with my family, driving through Ansonia. After turning onto a side street, we spotted a young man (about 12 years old) on a bicycle on our side of the road, riding toward us, head down and looking at something in his right hand. His friend, who was riding on the other side of the road, saw us and shouted to him, causing him to look up and move out of the way of oncoming traffic.

As we reached the two, we saw that the kid who had been riding on the wrong side of the street had been occupied with a cell phone.

Gee, wonder where he learned that?
