Just thought I’d share something that tickled me a few days ago…
Young mother on clapped-out scooter with $99 helmet, two kids in front with no helmets. Brakes are obviously long dead, almost gets squished between a car and a truck trying to perform a stupid manoeuver. Catch sight of the reg plate which says it all:
PS: well done Taichung City police. I’ve seen 3 or 4 people get stopped over the past few days for letting their young kids ride without helmets. Whatever the reason, this is a Good Thing. On my first and only scooter accident a few years back I was carrying one of those huge bottles of water in front and saw what happens to anything standing there even in a 20km/h slide. I feel like smacking any parent who sticks their 4 year old child on a scooter, let alone those who don’t even bother getting a helmet.
