What can I do to make my neighbor stop letting my child riding on their truck's running boards?
Question Details: I caught my 10 year old son riding on the side of a truck standing on running boards hanging onto window outside the door. I have asked the neighbor to stop this and never do it again but they did it anyhow and I saw it for the second time. Our kids play together and it's almost impossible to keep them from being friends an d hanging out but I have a problem with this and they dont care how I feel they live directly across the street. I am at a loss for getting through to them on dangers of this and I question their judgement completely. He said I was holding onto him. I have a few expletive thoughts at this time. Is there a way to protect myself and child from this? Who can I get help from here?
Send your neighbor a letter certified mail return receipt that if your son is injured riding on the truck's running boards , the neighbor will be sued and will be liable for your son's medical bills and pain and suffering which is an amount in addition to the medical bills. Tell your neighbor that his liability for your son's injuries could amount to six or seven figures.
