The two-wheelers in the viewfinder

There is also awareness of the use of a device to retain children-passing trees on motorcycles. According to Bintou Sanou of the helmets association, this protects the child in the event of a fall. "It is a seat belt for children, for two-wheelers. In general, people take the children behind. They just have their arms to stay around the person driving while it is not sure. What if a child falls asleep in circulation and falls?

in Burkina Faso, many users of two -wheelers also accuse traders of selling mopeds without associating a helmet. "When I went to buy my motorcycle, I claimed the helmet and I was told that it was not going with it. So you have to spend another 15,000 or 20,000 more on the helmet.

The merchants received a copy of a decree which requires the delivery of a helmet to any buyer of a motorcycle. Any offender will inflict a fine ranging from one to 25 million CFA francs.
