    With the accidents involving children bikers on the main road, the local government here is planning to ban children from riding. Children means 12 years old and below. My opinion on the issue is to ban minors from riding on the main road. In other words, only 18 years old and above can use the bike on the main road to avoid unnecessary accidents on the main road.

    Yeah, I think this is the right way to go since you can't trust on other people on the main road to just avoid the children bikers, and children haven't really mastered the traffic rules and all so it's best if they are prohibited from entering these roads with or without supervision.

    I think it's a good idea, and no sensible adult would let their child ride on a main road in traffic. I don't think children have developed a sense of fear of traffic, and are likely to do something wrong even if riding with an adult.
