I remember when I got my foot-powered scooter back when they were just coming into style (circ. 1989) and zipping all over town to show off my cool, new street machine. Well, it was cool for about a year or so. Then, my friends and I completely transitioned to bikes, leaving my scooter to sit in the garage. I think it’s still there. So sad.
Anyways, Matthew Broderick and his son James are certainly digging the scooter scene. The two were spotted leaving James’s school in NYC and heading home on the green machines with helmets and backpacks. Too cute.
It’s great to see kids growing up with the idea of wearing helmets. Makes me wonder how I survived not wearing one during my own childhood. Anyone else find it odd that everyone wears helmets today — when, say, 12 years ago that wasn’t the case?
