The Jerusalem Post Magazine - - LETTERS -

Good of you to give so much space to elec­tric bi­cy­cles is last week’s edi­tion. It is a very im­por­tant sub­ject.

But, hello! Where do the par­ents fea­ture? Nowhere? Have they no role to play? Can they not read the law which says that chil­dren have to be over the age of 16 to ride such bikes, must wear hel­mets, and so forth?

Our younger gen­er­a­tion is fast learn­ing from par­ents that the laws of the coun­try are ir­rel­e­vant. For ex­am­ple, one has only to spend a few min­utes on our roads to de­ter­mine that the laws are ig­nored and, sad to say, there is very lit­tle en­force­ment. When did you last see a po­lice­man on our main roads?

Shame on us. HERTZEL KATZ Ra­mat Hasharon
