This morning while walking Mabel I saw a man riding his bike down my street. He had a small girl perched on the bar connecting the seat to the handlebars. Neither the man nor the child had a helmet on. My street is quite busy in the morning and people drive fast. As I watched, incredulous, the guy went right through a red light across a busy intersection. It is one thing to risk your own safety; as an adult that is his choice. But to put a small child in such danger is unbelievable. I wanted to scream at him. I wished a policeman were there to arrest him. I believe it would qualify as child endangerment.
