TOO YOUNG TO BE ON A BIKE

YOU (South Africa) - - SAY -

I’ve just read the tragic ar­ti­cle about the death of Ma­ri­etjie Vosloo’s son (YOU, 29 Novem­ber). I can’t com­pre­hend how any­body could buy an off-road mo­tor­bike for a 13-year-old and then let him get on it with­out any form of train­ing or a re­spon­si­ble adult along­side him.

A 13-year-old isn’t ca­pa­ble of han­dling such a bike. Mo­tor­bikes in any form, shape or size are death traps and one needs to be ex­pe­ri­enced and safety-con­scious be­fore get­ting on one.
