Parents, kids and motor scooters

In Taiwan it is extremely common for parents to ride around with small children on motor scooters. You'd be surprised how often the parents will have helmets but not the kids.

While walking around the Xinzhuang district of New Tapei City, basically southwest Taipei, I'd say I encounter parent-wearing-helmet-with-kid-wearing-no-helmet at least a few times per day.

I've also seen a number of dogs trained to ride along as well.
