Road Rules

Noah is a natural on his bike....he loves it. He finally learned to start on his own, stop and turn corners without falling. But his favorite thing is to burn rubber, by throwing his brakes on and stopping as quick as he can. To watch him ride is the scariest thing in the world. He has no regard for cars or people...he just wants to ride fast. We went out the other night to ride and he was trying to catch up with the neighbor boys....he sped up to catch them, did not stop at the "major" intersection....he just ran right thru it - straight....not turning like he should have. Did not see the bronco coming straight at him, finally heard me yell to stop, slammed on his brakes right in the middle of the road. The bronco thank goodness stopped a few feet short of killing him......This kid is going to be the death of me....I literally could not fall asleep that night thinking about his near fatal crash. Needless to say he lost his bike privelage for the next day and he has to be very careful while riding now....he cannot be a speed racer until he gets it.
