Subject: calif passenger law


I'm new to the sidecar world and have asked city police, county sheriff (riverside,Ca) and CHP what the law is reguarding children passengers---4years / under 40 pounds.None of the agencies have an answer(been to their main offices, not an individual). Any one have an answer? P.S. I've drive a 61 FLH with a 39 hack.

Most states have few regulations that are sidecar specific. They rely mostly on 2 wheel bike rules. I have seen many small children in sidecars in California. The most at one time were at the Griffith Park Sidecar Rally in Los Angeles. Here in Washington a child under 5 years old cannot be a passenger on a two wheeled bike. However there are no rules blocking a child of any age from being a passenger in a sidecar rig since they are not upon a motorcycle but enclosed in the sidecar itself. There is no danger of falling off of the sidecar. The helmet rules still apply for sidecars and some folks have smaller children belted in or buckled in a child car seat. Most helmets used are either bicycle type for the little guys or, since there are so many powered scooters around, most large auto supply stores now have childrens sized DOT approved helmets for sale. At least they have them here, and I would assume also in California.
