Idiots and Electric Bicycles

I’m of two minds when it comes to electric bicycles.

On the one hand they’re really cool because they get you around without polluting too badly depending on where the electricity came from.  But on the other, they’re such a waste. Why spend all that money when you can buy a normal, human-powered bicycle for less and go almost as fast (or even faster downhill) and be burning fat/staying healthy at the same time?

 So it was with disgust that I saw an electric biker towing a bicycle trailer while I was biking home the other day.  This is the kind of trailer that is used to carry kids in behind bicycles.  Sure enough there was a young girl inside.   Neither of them wore bike helmets. The guy had only one hand to steer as he was smoking, holding his cigarette down at the side of his leg allowing the smoke, unfiltered, to flow directly into the little girl’s face.
 
I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
