Default Safety inflation

I saw a new version of the safety sticker on a kid's bike:

====================
WARNING!
Do not ride bikes
at night! Do not ride
bikes when it's wet
outside! Always ride
with an ANSI, Snell,
or ASTM approved
helmet! do not stunt
or jump with this
bicycle. Read and
obey your Owner's
Manual!
=====================

"Do not ride when it's wet outside" is new to me. Apparently puddles are
now deadly.

I'm curious: Does this sort of nonsense get stuck on bikes in Europe?

Crap, I better move. Europe is the killing fields -- don't use it as a yardstick for what is or is not safe. https://nltimes.nl/2016/04/12/nether...u-hurt-traffic Remember Thalidomide? That was a European thing. QED.

I've actually known people who died. It was tragic and could have been avoided had they lived.

I'm glad I got my childhood out of the way early on. That sticker just
prohibited almost all of my early cycling activities.

Good thing they didn't mention riding on snow and ice :-)

There are no warning stickers on kids bikes here.

Not ime. Are pedestrians and bath users also warned about the dangers
of their activities?

What!? Even my shoes have a warning sticker about use on slippery
surfaces! Shocking.

You left off "Do not ride at night."

No, they get no warnings - or at least, very few. But this is a country
where inane warning labels are everywhere. It's easy to find examples:

Bicycles get special treatment, though. 30 years of propaganda have been
used to portray bicycles as insanely dangerous.
