Having a 1 yo on a motorcycle isn't inherently dangerous. Based on what it says in the article it sounds like dad was engaging is unsafe riding practices. Riding up and down your driveway or in front of your home slowly isn't dangerous.
Sorry to hear about that. But I have to agree with the PP, it isn't in itself dangerous until you stuff doing stuff you shouldn't on it with a child.
Took DS on a sport motorcycle when he was about 3, DH in front, DS in middle, me on back to keep him on because DH had to lean over the gas tank (and while DH has long arms, they weren't quite long enough to control the bike and keep DS on). We went as slow as possible around the dirt road and came back.
I would......if I had one of these belts, and I would put the 1 year old in front of me. This is a friend of ours.
