this is a little absurd... banning bicycle trailers?

in the Bike Friendly Capital of the world Oregon there is a law maker trying to ban children under 6 in bicycle trailers

Bike Traillers Could Become Illegal for Oregon Youngsters

AMAZING!
Burley is a Oregon company
I wonder where they stand on this?

oh... I bet they are shocked and feel that it is absurd!

but really

if the trailer is dangerous

then don't forget the trail-a-bike!

The Travoy by Burley... I feel that there is a market for some utility grocery carriers like this

should I feel lucky that we survived?

when riding a bicycle with a trailer or trail-a-bike I would always select to ride accordingly
yes... there was "urban" riding
we did traverse the city
but... I would ride differently with my kids in tow
and interestingly enough... I ALWAYS FELT LIKE CARS BEHAVED DIFFERENTLY WITH MY TRAILER OR TRAIL-A-BIKE ATTACHED TO THE BIKE
in fact...
cars passed in a fashion that I wished that they always passed the bicyclist

I love my Doggy Ride bike trailer: http://www.bicycletrailersonline.com/doggyride-mini-bicycle-trailers-urban-drmntr02-p-668.html.
That's it.
