Nurse Jackie star Edie Falco has come under fire for taking her young daughter out on an electric bike in New York, seated by the handle bars and wearing just a flimsy bike helmet.

The mom-of-two was snapped out and about in the Big Apple on the bike earlier this week with five-year-old Macy strapped to her body, and has the hair raising photos.

Even though Edie looks like she’s wearing a proper motorcycle helmet herself, her daughter just has plastic bicycle headgear on.

From the pictures it also appears Macy is tied to her mother with a brown karate strap – not an actual seatbelt.

According to the Motorcycle Safety Foundation, technically Edie isn’t breaking any laws since it’s not actually a motorcycle, but the pictures would still concern most parents, the organization said.

“Since the bike has an engine under 750 watts it’s an e-bike, and so she is not breaking any laws that we can see," a spokesperson tells exclusively. “It’s a bit of a grey area.

“But I’m sure if you showed a poll of parents these pictures the majority would be concerned. We are not passing judgment but this does not appear to be the best way to transport a child.

“Whenever anyone gets on a powered two wheel vehicle they have to take responsibility for themselves and for their passenger and make sure the appropriate gear is worn.”

Edie, 49, was riding a FlyKly electric bike, which can hit speeds of up to 20mph.
