Police Officer Jason Flynn, left, and Officer Leonard Penna ride their police bicycles on a roadway at Fairfield Hills earlier this week. The two men, who are school resource officers at Newtown High School and Newtown Middle School, respectively, do police patrol work on bicycles in the summertime. (Gorosko photo)
One of these officers was crossing Church Hill Road illegally the other day. He scared me - I thought he was going to ride right into my lane. Annoyed me when I saw it was police officer. If you're going to ride - follow the rules of the road. This photo too isn't sending a great message. Come on guys... both going the same way with double yellow lines? What kind of message is this sending?
