they shouldnt have been riding there, but had stopped before moving off. The police werent to bothered as no one was hurt, and though they should have been walking their bikes, thats not an excuse for the driver who collected my sons friend.
i was surprised to know that 14 year olds are not supposed to be riding on the footpath. Apparently its 12 and under in NSW. Thats one rule i dont care if they break for now, 14 is too young and stupid to ride on a road....
oh, and the helmet did its job.
Glad to hear that your sons friend is OK
In Qld it’s fine for anyone of any age to ride a bike on the footpath. IMHO it’s not cool forcing people to ride on the road when they are 1) not ready or 2) it’s not safe. Oh, but we’re not allowed to ride across a pedestrian crossing though
