Driving towards Hopton on Station Road, with my youngsters in the car, I was held up by a teenager on a BMX bike. With cars approaching on the opposite side I slowed down behind him. At no point did the hooded youth turn to look behind him.
He pulled numerous uncontrolled ‘wheelies’ and skidded on his back wheel. I pressed my horn to alert him how dangerous this was and without even turning, he made a hand gesture and continued.
This happened a few hundred yards from where a boy of similar age sadly lost his life on a bike. How disrespectful and disregarding of other people is this young lad.
If he lost control and a car collided with him it would affect so many people’s lives. I only wish a police officer had witnessed this and could educate him appropriately.
This kind of attitude from youngsters is all too common and needs addressing by parents and schools.
