What do you think about babies in bicycle trailers?
Does is seem strange that even though motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of accidental deaths for children in the U.S. that most people freak out if you talk about pulling a kid in a trailer?
I hear that in Canada they are thinking about making it a law that you cannot carry a child until they are 1.5 years old.
I think that an infant in an auto car seat that is strapped into a burley type kid trailer is at least as safe as in a car. I am taking into account that I would be taking mostly slower streets while a motorist is likely to be going 50,60,70 or even 80 mph.
I think a lot of this attitude is just ignorance. Even though we all have friends who are buried now due to cars some people continue to think they are the only "safe" way to travel.
