Duty of Care?

I'm undecided on whether a newsagent should have to ensure his paper boys/girls method of transport is correctly lit. I would image under current H & S legislation that he could be found negligent if he didn’t. What seems to be getting missed is that the parents have the ultimate Duty of Care to...

They coped well with the forestry tracks and road sections and we had no punctures. They're knobbly (ish) but also have...
