Yep. Be careful with them little ones. They couldn't even survive a fall if the bike tipped over much less a fall when it's moving. I waited until they were old enough to wear a helmet. Not just any helmet, but one that fit. And, even with the helmet, I'll only go for short, slow rides where little traffic is present. Don't be in too much of a hurry to get your kid on a bike. There'll be plenty of time.

To my knowledge, Illinois is only one of a handful of states that does not have any type of helmet legislation.
I am pro-choice, but not when involves a minor who can't even talk.
Chances are nothing would happen, but you never know. My 6 year old niece just fell of her bicycle in her driveway and was in the hospital for 2 days with a severe concussion.
Sometimes a little common sense goes a long way...
Originally posted by YZFRob First thing check to see whats the min age for a chold on a motorcycle as a passenger (2 definately is a no-no even with a helmet). Then call the cops next time.
Unfortunately the state doesn't identify a specific age when it comes to passengers on a motorcycle. The only stipulation is that the bike has to be equipped with a passenger seat and footpegs. Additionally, and here's the key, the passenger MUST be able to firmly plant their feet on the footpegs if not then the rider is considered to be illegal. I'm sure a 2 year old wasn't able to reach the pegs so the driver could then be cited.
