i need help asap...as in yesterday...what do i do?*Spoke to law enforcement*
my ex and i get along great and agree on almost everything concerning our ds. we have a great relationship and there is one thing that seems to constantly pick an argument!
my ds just turned 4 yesterday. my exdh owns two motorccycles...crotch rocket style, not harley.
he had been taking ds on slow roll rides in the yard to get him used to the bike. an he didnt have a cycle helmet yet so he put a bike helmet and pad on him. which i was never ok with!
well now that ds has a full face kbc with a biking suit full body with padding built in and gloves etc, hes taking him on city streets!!!
now, ds sits on coreys lap in front of him and corey leans over him. but were talking 30mph!!!!!never more than that but still!!!!
im seriously NOT ok with this. corey is an excellent rider, he doesnt mess around. it has nothing to do with his abilities, i just feel like four is too youngto be going 30mph ona crotch rocket on citystreets, especially five miles at a time (distance between his house and daycare)
what can i do? custody and court aside, how do i convice him hes to young?
or am i completely overreacting?
I called the missouri highway patrol AND the boone county sheriffs office. they both said a child must be in a booster seat until age 8 in a four wheeled enclosed vehicle. 2 and 3 wheeled open vehicles do not have the same laws. In fact, there are NO laws regarding children and motorcylcles or trikes. the only law is that the helmet be a DOT approved helmet (which his is) and there are no laws rules or regulations concerning WHERE the child must be positioned (behind or in front of driver) they said its all about common sense and comfort for the child and driver. Their feet DO NOT have to touch the pegs as long as they have somewhere safe to set them.
Both said if they saw corey with Tucker on his bike on the street or highway they would NOT bother him at all just for haveing my 45lb 4 yr old on there!
also, it is NOT child endangerment and he is NOT breaking any missouri laws.
so I have NO argument in this one. I just have to deal with it.
I did talk to corey about the safety belt someone mentioned and he agreed to look into it, I even offered to split the cost with him if he would get one!
