One day after Gov. Timothy M. Kaine admitted the state’s so-called abusive driver fees had failed and called for them to be repealed, Cornish was ordered to pay a fee of $1,050 for recklessly operating his 18-speed Huffy in an intersection during rush hour.
“A bike with pedals – a 4-year-old can ride a bike,” Cornish said Thursday. “I could see it happen if I’m riding the wrong way down the expressway – that’s dumb.”
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.

You can’t say he’s a danger because cars have to wait for him and then turn around and say he was going too fast. It’s like claiming up and down are the same fucking thing at the same fucking time.
