I am very upset. Because I am a good, ultra cautious driver, I avoided colliding with and injuring or killing a tiny girl cyclist in Midtown shopping center this Sunday afternoon - the back road entrance off of Colorado this afternoon. Shame on you, negligent Dad cyclist with little girls - you only paid attention to your older little girl while your TINY girl cyclist wavered all over the road including RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY CAR! While I had the right of way, I exercised extreme caution and stopped as your TINY girl struggled and this is NOT OK.I would NOT have liked hitting your TINY girl but it could easily have happened as I had the right of way.
You didn't even glance back at your TINY girl and she could have been killed - you don't know how lucky you are. Your TINY girl is incapable of managing her little bike on the public roadways. Please, drivers, watch out for negligent cycling dad.
