The ludicrous law, un-known to me until today, makes it illegal to give a 'backie'. A backie is the process of giving someone a ride on a bike, meant for one person.
The law, within the 'Road and Traffic act', makes it illegal to ride with two on a bike, meant for one.
The law has been described as 'ludicrous' and 'intrusive', in the sense that most believe, people are capable of knowing that riding a bike with two people on it happens to be rather dangerous.
