Never leave your bike with engine running.

Some motorcycle or scooter drivers are in a hurry, so much so that they sometimes leave their bikes' engine running while they buy something from a nearby store. In the video, a little girl playfully hops onto a scooter with its' engine still running resulting in her crashing onto the pavement and nearly got bit by a dog.

Some may say that the kid's parents should never have left the child unattended and that we should always hold on to our children whether it is just to the neighborhood convenience store, but to me that could have been avoided if only the driver didn't leave his motorcycle on.

What do you think? Who should be blamed for this?

A word of advice for drivers...never leave your bike with the engine running. We never know who gets on it. It was a child this time and it may be a thief the next.

I don't want to place blame as this is the first that I have heard of this. I would not leave my car running so that I could run into a store.

I think it is rather careless and foolish of any driver to leave a a vehicle running while they go shopping. One never knows how long it might take. sometimes queues can be long or a friend can detain you.

Leaving the engine running, car or bike or lawnmower, etc is asking for trouble. Murphy's Law, "If anything can go wrong, it will".

An accident is not a means to assign blame but for all involved parties to learn from.

Gosh sorry but that sounds like a stupid thing to do, especially with opportunistic thieves around.

I wonder who is so stupid as to do that. It is a tragedy waiting to happen.

This is a good reminder. Safety should always be taken seriously.
