Title: kids on bikes
Post by: Debs on August 19, 2008, 20:53:35 pm
 i have just now come back from trowbridge after picking up my son and there are 3 bikes with learner plates on riding along in front of me.... to fast to over take IF i wanted to...i couldnt because the first 2 were riding side by side with one looking and trying to fiddle with the other ones bike as they were riding...... this went on for quite a while too
 i never agreed with 16 year olds having this little scooters...my kids thought i was tight not allowing them to have them. they are a danger on the roads... one lesson after their 16th birthday adn they are allowed on the roads on a potentially dangerous machine...
crazy if you ask me.... and they also drive in packs to never on their own and too close to the boot of your car. that close they could almost be your new mascot

moan over !!!!!    silly fools

They are legally allowed to ride two abreast. I suspect that fiddling with another bike though would be driving without due care. Kids on scooters should be shoot, yes. Shot in the side of the head to best preserve the organs for donation.
