Just curious......! Seems pretty stupid. A quick stop for some reason and you might become road kill, even at 25-30mph.

It's illegal in the 3 states that I've lived in. Never mind the people, pull in that fender before someone looks amature...

Just kidin'.

I think they are going 5mph or close to walking speed , not 30mph. so yah at a few mph its fine in my book but at anything over 15mph not good. thats a pic of a parade which is fine plus with that trailer if they fell they would hit the trailer not the street.

Parade? I took the pic....it was over 25 miles per hour. They were on the way back from the launch ramp in Long Beach and this was taken at least a mile from there. I took this from the bridge to the Hyatt.
