Bicycling To School Unlawful In Tennessee

About once a year this story pops up somewhere across the country -- a well-intentioned police officer or a principal tells parents that they cannot allow their kids to ride a bicycle to school because the authority believes it's too dangerous.

This time the case comes from Tennessee, where a police officer told a mother that she would be arrested for child neglect if she allowed her 10-year-old daughter to ride her bicycle to school.

The police officer thought it was too dangerous for mom to allow her daughter to bike one mile school.
