This kid, would have been about 7 or 8 years old, riding around on the footpath near a local park with a few of his little friends. They were having a ball. Racing each other, chasing each other, making lots of noise and generally doing what kids do best... made me really look forward to having kids of my own. But these kids were all pure evil (esp in NSW!)... Rule Offence Demerits Fine 245(a) Not sit astride bicycle rider's seat 1 $50 245(b) Not ride bicycle with hands on bars 1 $50 245(c) Ride bicycle in incorrect position 1 $50 247 Not ride in bicycle lane 1 $50 256 Rider not wear bicycle helmet fastened 1 $50 96A(2) Ride bicycle furiously 1 $50 To name a few... The poor bright eyed kid would have lost half a car driver's licence and $250 just for being out in the sunshine doing what we all did growing up. I'm not saying cops are so heartless that they would book them, but it when we keep getting so many frivolous rules and regulations, it dampens my spirits somewhat.
