Does your govt. allow you buy unsafe vehicles of any description?
With few, if any, enforced regulations regarding bicycles either here in Canada (essentially a socialist nation) or the US, I'd venture to say that the government would be hard pressed to prove any bicycle, regardless of style, as being inherently unsafe. I'll put my alt bikes up against anything on the road when it comes to safety and equipment. I would more than meet any legal inspection. It is possibly libelous to suggest that choppers, cruisers, lowriders (most of which are cared for with greater affection and attention than regular bikes) are unsafe and a threat.
