I visit rural Japan about once a year, and I see this all over. A parent or older sibling will be riding a bicycle with 2 or 3 small children, some on the handlebars, some clinging to the back seat. No restraints, no seat-belt, no helmet. It's doubly shocking because the roads are so narrow, and the verge is often a half-meter drop to the gutter below. And the people I meet are so safety-conscious otherwise, it's baffling.
