Unsafe at Any Speed

Published September 30, 2011

Police in Tennessee have warned the mother of a ten-year-old daughter the mother will face child neglect charges if she allows her daughter to continue to ride her bicycle to and from school, a ten-minute trip.

The mother complained to police higher-ups, who confirmed she would be arrested for violating child neglect laws if it happened again.
