Interesting Picture Captured (9) - Pillion Rider

lim peh ka li kong

I have written on the topic of motorbiker having a small child as the pillion on the road.

Knn, lim peh saw another one again.

The helmet was definitely too big for the small boy and what's worse, the boy began to doze off.

Before lim peh could warn the father (I presume he's the father of the little boy), he sped off very quickly when the traffic light turned green.

lim peh kong wan liao

    When a man is poor and can only afford a bike instead of car, he would ferry his kid around on his bike once the kid knows how to wrap his arms around his father.

    You mean if you can only afford a bike, you would not use it to ferry your small one around? :)

    Even the ang-mohs find it appalling that the foreign workers sit around uncovered, unprotected on the back of a lorry to get to and from work :p

    The legal pillion age in Singapore is 10 years old.

    If I were to have a bike, would I ferry my small ones around? My answer is no. I would rather spend more money and time by taking taxi, MRT or bus than to risk the lives. Would you risk it if you were in his shoes?

    Looking at the picture I captured, the boy did not wrap his hands around his dad and that's very dangerous.

    Foreign workers sitting at the back of uncovered lorries, in my opinion, should not be allowed but seems like everyone is doing so. Something needs to be done.

    the kid can sit infront hor, then use belt to tie both together. Then at least if fall asleep wont fly away.

    Kids don't really understand the danger and risk, the parent should be the one thinking.

    This brings me to the issue of having a child seat inside a car. Traffic police say motorists who ferry kids around in their car need to have the child restrained in a child seat. But somehow this rule does not apply to kids taking the taxis. It would be very hard for such a rule to be imposed on taxis too.

    i do agree with you that it's better and safer for the motorcyclist to bring his kid around on the bus and MRT rather than riding behind him on a bike. Whether it's for convenience's sake or the motorcyclist got no money to bring the kid to ride on the bus and MRT, only he knows.

    Taxi with no child-seat is another issue to be resolved.

    Sometimes somethings cannot be compromised. Spend more time and money on public transports is definitely better than bike fetching.
