Cyclist convicted of reckless driving in the US

Newport, Va:

Cornish, 19, doesn’t drive and was convicted of reckless driving in Newport News traffic court for a ticket he received after riding his bike across Warwick Boulevard.

Cornish was returning to work when he received the summons.

Officer George Evans said drivers had to slow down to avoid hitting Cornish when he crossed the intersection and that he would have written a warning if not the ticket.

“If he gets hit, then we have a mess,” Evans said, adding that as a citizen, he thinks the abusive driver fees are too high, but also out of his control.
