That is sorry. I sometimes don't wear one on my chopper but there ain't no way in heck I don't make my daughter wear one. Bad parenting that could end up in a horrible ending.

I love it. Don't snitch on him. Lie to him instead.

There are laws about riding unlicensed motor vehicles on public streets, underage vehicle operators, unlicensed operators, and if I'm not mistaken anyone under the age of eighteen is required to wear a helmet. The parent can be ticketed for those offenses.

Nope. Won't happen that way. If you talk to him you won't do a bit of good because the whole helmet issue is up for discussion all the time. Everyone has heard it. If he hasn't made her start wearing one by now, no words from the concerned neighbor he has never met is going to help.

Then when you do get to the point of making the call and the cop says a concerned neighbor called it in, he will know exactly where it came from. That wouldn't be a problem for me but is obviously a concern for you.

Don't know what house they live at in the neighborhood,i just see her riding by my house all the time. I don't see the dad on his bike often. She is usually doing about 50 when she goes buy so short of running out in the street and knocking her off the bike i really don't have a way to stop it.

so instead of doing the right thing, your theory is to be a sissy and lie to them? and you honestly think that bs story will work? nope. theyll roll their eyes at you and throw it in the garbage as soon as you turn your back.

Actually comes from accident studies. They find that most people tend to relax and pay less attention in familiar surroundings, and that leads to more accidents.

It is the "almost home" syndrom where you drive with high attention and care, and then when you are "almost" home you tend to relax and start thinking about other things.

talk to the parents but do NOT give her your helmet. You may be liable if she gets hurt in an accident wearing the helmet you gave her.

How do you figure? So him giving it to her is different than him selling it to her? What grounds would they have? I am very curious about this one.

I would not sell it to her nor give it to her. For product liability, the whole distribution chain can be held responsible from the manufacturer to the store that sells the product. If she gets in an accident and something fails with the USED helmet, say the strap breaks, it could get legally ugly. Why put yourself at risk and put yourself in that chain; especially on a used helmet.

It's not sissy but neighborly reminder. Maybe they listen, maybe they will laugh and say it's none of my business and throw it in the garbage.

My kids wear helmets even when riding their bicycles. There's no question about whether or not they'll ride one on their dirt bikes... + all other gear available for them.

It's NOT a lie to have a story about a child dying- MY 9-yr-old Godson suffered an horrendous injury in a bicycle accident in which he died en route (in the ambulance) to the hospital. It DOES happen- and he wasn't hit by a car, he flipped over the handle bars.

I really have issues with this topic, I don't have kids, but I do have issues with other people telling people how to raise their kids, government or otherwise. I am not railing against wearing gear, however I am a little uncomfortable with neighbors getting the law "invloved". You can can cause unnecesarilly serious issues by invloving the "authorities" in anything. The child is not being abused, it's none of your business.
