Living in bali, riding around on motorbikes is one of the most convenient means of transportation.
Well, not for me.
Its more dangerous for on a motorbike.
Actually, its more dangerous for everyone else on the street if I were to ride a motorbike lol.
But hey, heres a simple concept:
WEAR A HELMET
Driving around every day, I see countless people riding around with no helmets.
On a motorbike.
With two children.
In bali, a cheap helmet costs about 5 bucks
A good one, maybe 20 bucks
Now the police here are all about the corruption and ripping off westerners at any given moment.
Oh, international license?
Oh, um no reason, just give me money.
And yet when locals drive by these cops with five children on a bike, they don’t bat an eyelid.
Oh, shes wearing a hat, that’s good enough
Oh, shes carrying a fruit basket, yeah that’s close enough
Oh, a hoodie, great
You know what
You are an adult
If you want to fall and smash your head, go ahead
But protect the children
20 dollar helmet
Or thousands of dollars in hospital bills…
Up to you
