It's a pic from some foreign country of a whole family with several children all clinging to a motorbike. You can find similar pics all over the internet.
I'd imagine the people that live in countries where that kind of crap happens all the time also have plenty of accidents and injuries and death as a result...

Yes, In other countries people often carry children on motor or push bikes, it does not appear to be something that the authorities have an issue with. That makes it no less devastating if an accident occurs, especially if a child who has no choice about being on that bike is killed or injured. Here in Australia, we do have laws which clearly state that everyone on a bike must be wearing a helmet. Passengers on a motorbike must be over 8 years of age and whilst there don't seem to be laws about carrying a baby specifically, you may not double unless the bicycle is designed to carry an extra person or it is fitted with an appropriate seat. Ignorance of the law is not considered an excuse and pulling out a picture from a foreign country really doesn't prove anything IMO.

I was watching a doco ages back - not sure which country it was but they had just introduced their first traffic law. Can't remember what the law was either - something like dont intentionally run people over I'd hope!!! But that stuck in my head the idea of a country with no road rules!!!! Eek!
