This is a common scene in Malaysia. You can see teens not wearing helmets when riding a motorcycle in housing areas. Even the pillion rider are showing off their excellent hair flowing with the wind , without the bike helmet. In the evening, I saw a couple of male teens , in the age ranging from 13-15 years old, not wearing helmets as they ride on motorcycles to nearby coffeeshop for tea. They had broken three rules; they are underage, they do not have the bike license and they are not wearing the helmets. This is a very dangerous act that should be taken into serious consideration for the parents themselves and the policemen on routine. Since they are teens, parents should take them in hand, discipline them about safety on the road. As for the police, I wish they would at least bring the teens back to the police station and get them to ring up their parents to pick them up. At least they know what their teens had been doing!

I think this is a problem everywhere and I just can't seem to fathom why they won't just wear the darn helmet? Is it because they think it's not cool? Ugh. I have been through that phase before but never will I exchange ny life for a few minutes of adrenaline rush.

@peachpurple I think it's peer pressure that they not do it cause they might be called wuss. What they need to realize and understand is no one's gonna call them cool or brave if they die when they die because of a head trauma for not wearing it.

teens like to take many tings for granted, and get paid for such in a hard way.
