Sure, you can't do as much damage texting while cycling as you can texting while driving -- but that's only because you're (carelessly) operating a smaller vehicle. But a teenage cyclist in Ontario managed to do quite a bit of damage, and earn himself a ticket to boot.

"The 16-year-old boy was composing a message as he was riding his bicycle just before 11 a.m.," police said. "The impact tossed him from his bike and into the rear window of the car, smashing it."
