I'm in two minds about stories like this.
Anyone who lets their small child ride a bike on the pavement by a road with buses on it needs a stern talking to. The average street in Britain is
cramped, especially when compared to our American counterparts. However, the article is far from clear on the actual circumstances involved and is a
classic example of how our newspapers in the UK are full of nothing stories designed to induce fear, paranoia and thus, division.
If you read some of the comments in the link provided you can see the media induced hysteria-level of the average Brit nowadays, it's crazy.
I agree about him being too young to be out without adult supervision.Thank goodness he wasn't killed,beaten up for his bike,grabbed by a paedo
etc - there were so many other things that could have gone wrong so the little lad got off very lightly.Let's hope it is a wake-up call for the
"Killed", "Beaten for his bike", "Paedos"... etc. Get a grip people!
I think it's great he survived though! God (or whatever the guiding force in the universe is) was looking out for that kid. I've seen people get
hit by buses and it's not pretty.
