    Umm.. I may have a problem...

    I drive my kids stroller like I ride.

    ... accelerating to pass.

    ... keeping an eye out and avoiding bumps in the sidewalk.

    ... hands close to center on the bar.

    ... finding a line between pedestrians/other strollers.

    ... I even caught myself a couple of days ago peeking over my shoulder before moving over...

    I have serious and deeply embedded mental issues.
    You'd better sit down before you fall down.

    Yeah, but is it brakeless? Do you put your balls on the steering wheel to skid?

    Why would you ride like that to begin with?
