Can't you see the car tire on the back? He's eventually going to end up dead.

Please don't confuse rules and responsibilities. I am compelled to respect the welfare of those sovereign folks around me, if I'm passing them on the wrong side of yellow or otherwise.

Or perspective with enforcement. I'm not here to cure stupid. I've got enough of my own improvements to make. You will not see me lobby for an ATGATT law, though is your post not as determinedly influential as my own?

I do confess I'm previously unaware that guilt has been compelling me. I'll need to get to the bottom of that. Not sure how to help you.

PS - love your town.

Your problem is your problem.

The kid has her feet on the pegs and has a nice FF helmet.

Perfectly legal everywhere in the USA, as far as I know.

I'm glad my mother & father didn't have a problem with it, as I got my first taste of motorcycling at the ripe old age of.........................8 weeks!!! Hmmmm? I wonder if Dad had me ATGATT? I think he may have had a leather diaper on my ass.

Obviously, you don't think there's anything wrong with a little kid dressed like that riding on the back of a bike as long as she has a "nice FF helmet".

Your post about "child endangerment" was hilarious!

You don't really believe that, do you?
