The Streets Of Tampa
When you ride as many miles on the roads and streets in Tampa Bay, you get a pretty good handle on the spectrum of human behavior.
Such as this clown riding in the back of a pickup truck on Nebraska Avenue in north Tampa.
One quick stop and this fella is bug squash.
But it was just one of several bright moves by people on local streets today that I noticed.
I was biking down Nebraska Avenue later in the day and saw a green light at an intersection. A driver who was stopped at the red light on a cross street decided he had waited long enough and casually passed the red and made a left turn onto Nebraska Avenue as I approached the intersection.
And then later in the day on 12th Street in Seminole Heights, I saw a guy sitting in the driver's seat of a white Toyota Corolla and he had a little girl sitting between him and steering wheel and THE GIRL WAS STEERING THE WHEEL!
