So... by an extension of your logic, we would also need to start requiring brakes on skateboards. No? Are you saying that any wheeled travel should require a brake? Unicycles? Wheelchairs? And if self controlled braking is itself the problem, then a speed limit on jogging and running is certainly in order, as well as shoe inspection for traction. I'd like to compare the costs created by brakeless fixies to those of patrolling, citing, and trying the cases, and then weigh those against the costs of auto accidents in which speeding or poor maintenance prevented adequate braking... Or am I missing the point of attempting to regulate those damned hipsters and their youthful folly?
