Caught on dashcam: Motorbike rider carrying toddler with no helmet

A driver in Dewsbury was shocked to see a motorbike rider with a toddler perched behind the handlebars without a helmet on.

The dangerous balancing act was captured on dashcam video by Debbie Cascarino Ramsden, on Halifax Road, yesterday afternoon.

Debbie said the boy, who looked to be aged around two-years-old, was sat in front of the man on the bike’s seat and was gripping the handlebars.

“It was near the Old Shoulder of Mutton pub at around 3pm so it was school run time and the roads were relly busy,” she said.

“I was shocked and disgusted at the fact he didn’t have a helmet on.

“When I saw the small child I just kept thinking, ‘what if he had an accident or the boy had fallen off,’ as he was only holding on to front handlebars.”
