Ding Dong. Ding Dong.
Hi! What can I do for you?
Did you know your daughter is out riding her bike on the street?
Kids DO ride bikes in their neighborhoods. They have, for like, generations.
Well, I almost ran her over when she shot out in front of me and I was wondering if anyone was watching her.
Thank you for not running her over. I appreciate that.
I just wondered if anyone is watching her.
Well, thanks for letting me know. Thanks for not running her over. I’ll talk to her about bike safety again.
Mommy can I go ride my bike?
Yes. Watch for cars. Pull over to the side if a car is coming. Never, ever shoot out in front of one. Look both ways. Don’t cross if a car is coming. Be very careful please.
Perhaps I should petition the city council for a sign: Kids play here. Don’t run them over.
